Thanksgiving is a fraught holiday for sure, but it can also be a pleasant mess of turkey, pumpkin pie, awkward family politics and gratitude — a day to gather together and take stock of life. But when all that togetherness includes a houseful of kids who are overly excited for a long weekend and most definitely on a sugar high from sneaking cranberry sauce before dinner — well, let's just say things can get a little crazy.

After you've worn kids out by organizing a race around the block (what? It's a brilliant idea) some Thanksgiving coloring pages are all you need to keep everyone entertained while you attempt to finish cooking dinner. Just print these pages out, hand out some crayons and let them go to town. The bonus? You can even use the finished products as decorations for the dining table.
