8 Kids Thanksgiving Movies

 Kids Thanksgiving movies are the perfect way to cuddle up together for family movie night leading up to Thanksgiving day. These eight titles will surely become family favorites throughout the holiday season.   


Does anyone else feel like Thanksgiving is a somewhat difficult holiday to celebrate? There aren't too many good Thanksgiving books to read with kids, there seems to be a lot of content that is culturally insensitive to Native Americans and the true origins of the holiday, and finding something to watch that is light and fluffy, while still being festive seems nearly impossible. I've gathered together 8 kids Thanksgiving movies that will hopefully be fun and entertaining while still getting your family in the festive mindset for the upcoming holiday! 


8 Kids Thanksgiving Movies:

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving: Did anyone else grow up watching all things Charlie Brown for every holiday and event? I did and I'm trying to project that onto my children and their future off spring as well. I love the simple message of this movie about gathering with friends and sharing what you have, even if it doesn't look perfect or make total sense. All the Charlie Brown movies will not be avaialable to watch on TV this year, and the DVDs are selling out like crazy online. You can watch for free on AppleTV+ from Nov 25th- Nov 27th. 

Garfield Thanksgiving: Garfield always reminds me of my grandma who was the epitome of creepy cat lady. This Garfield Thanksgiving show is available to watch on Youtube, and if you're into watching a man make Thanksgiving dinner while making a fool of himself, this is for you. It's 30 minutes long and is a great quick watch! 

Free Birds: This cute movie is about two turkeys who are vastly different from each other but decide to work together to travel back in time to get turkey taken off the Thanksgiving dinner menu. It sounds super cute and I'm excited to watch it with my kids! Available to rent or purchase on Amazon.

Winne the Pooh: Seasons of Giving: Is there anything more wholesome than Winnie The Pooh? In this Thanksgiving special Pooh Bear and his friends discover their new favorite season, and find the fixings for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner. You can watch a low quality version for free on Youtube via this playlist, or there are several used DVD options you can find online.

Alvin and the Chipmunks Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration: Alvin and the Chipmunks were a huge classic in my house growing up. Their Thanksgiving special is wildly popular and on every single Thanksgiving movie list I saw while prepping this post. You can watch this by purchasing the entire Chipmunk Holiday collection on Amazon for $20+ or just the Thanksgiving version for a whopping $35. It might be available to stream from some obscure source online. But these are the two best legal options from what I can see. 

Turkey Hollow: A Jim Henson's movie about two kids who find themselves bored and without internet tracking an elusive monster that everyone else in town thought was an urban legend. A great movie for older kids with live people and rate PG. 

We’re back: A Dinosaur’s Story: A couple of kids in NYC wish for something amazing to happen and find themselves hiding some dinosaurs in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade at the start of their big adventure. DVD is available to purchase on Amazon. 

The Mouse on the Mayflower: This movie tells about the Pilgrims original voyage on The Mayflower from the perspective of a mouse who saves the ship during a storm at sea. When they arrive to America safely they start their church, sign The Mayflower Compact, and have the first Thanksgiving feast. Available to watch on Youtube.

20+ Thanksgiving Children's Books

Thanksgiving children's books can reach a wide range of topics from historical and serious to light and fluffy. This list includes Thanksgiving Children's Books for a variety of Thanksgiving themes. 

Thanksgiving Children's books can be a complicated space to navigate. There's the classic light and fluffy ones that talk about turkeys dodging farmers. There are serious books that open up conversations about what it was really like to be a native person at that time. Then there are the books that talk about the beauty of gathering with family and the magic of fall. 

I personally think that all of these types of Thanksgiving Children's Books have their time and space, and that they can all be a great way to talk about and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. I'm the type of parent that really likes to teach my children about the truth and meaning behind the traditions we celebrate, while also enjoying the fun that comes along with holidays as well. 

If you're in the market for Thanksgiving Children's Books that hit all the different nuances of Thanksgiving day, I've broken this list up into a variety of categories to help you find your favorite titles.

Thanksgiving Children's Books

Historically Based Pilgrims/Native American Books

The Very First Americans: I think it's so important to teach our kids about who really lived in this land first. This book tells about the native tribes from coast to coast and what their lives were like before we got here. 

Squanto's Journey: The Story of the First Thanksgiving: This book tells of Squanto who first greeted the pilgrims when they got to America. It does a really good job of accurately telling what this moment was like, and will lead to deep conversations about this time with your children. 

The First Thanksgiving Day: A Counting Story: This fun picture book takes you through the preparations that the Indians and Pilgrims went through to prepare the first Thanksgiving feast. It has a warm message of working together and loving your neighbor despite differences. 

The First Thanksgiving Day: This fun counting book tells the story of the first Thanksgiving for young readers in a fun a fast paced story. This is one we started reading with the kids years ago and it's still a favorite. 

The Story of the Pilgrims: This book tells about the journey of the Pilgrims on the Mayflower and their first harsh winter in America and the help they received from the Native people. 

The First Thanksgiving: A Lift The Flap Book: This super simple board book is a great and colorful way to talk about Thanksgiving with your smallest children. 

Sarah Gives Thanks: How Thanksgiving Became A National Holiday: This book tells the story of Sarah Hale and the work she did to get Thanksgiving recognized as a national holiday. 

The Littlest Pilgrim: This cute book talks about a little pilgrim who finds herself unable to help with many of the chores because she is too small. But she's never to small to make a special friend. 

If You Were at The First Thanksgiving: This book tells the tale of the first Thanksgiving written from the perspective of a child. I love the way it tells the story of this time, and it has some serisouly beautiful illustrations. 

Thanksgiving Children's Books About Family Feasts

Over the River and Through the Wood: This picture book has beautiful illustrations to the poem we all know, and sung as a child. Although I was shocked to see that the book said, "to grandfather's house we go...", I could have sworn it was grandmother's my entire life. 

One is a Feast for Mouse: Mouse peeks out of his hole after Thanksgiving dinner and sees one little pea on the kitchen table... along with a ton of other leftovers. Can he get them all back to his hole without getting caught? 

Thanksgiving in the Woods: This story is about a family who takes a journey into the woods each year t eat Thanksgiving in nature, just like how the original holiday started.

Thanksgiving Children's Books About Turkeys:

Run, Turkey, Run!: It's almost Thanksgiving and everyone on the farm is getting ready and excited for the big day... everyone except for Turkey that is. Can he escape the Farmer in time, or will he become dinner?

Turkey Trouble: This book is about a turkey that comes up with a lot of different disguises so that he doesn't become Thanksgiving dinner. The end result is quite funny and one the kids will love. 

The Plump and Perky Turkey: The townspeople try to lure the birds to their homes by hosting an arts and crafts show just for turkeys. They get the turkeys to come, but the turkeys outsmart them as the last minute. 

10 Fat Turkeys: This fun story teaches kids to count backwards from 10 while having a fun rhyming rhythm about fun turkey antics and a grumpy farmer.

The Great Turkey Race: All the turkeys want to be the Thanksgiving turkey, but only one can be it, so they hold a race. You'll have to pick up a copy to see how this tale gobbles out. 

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey: My kids have adored this series for years, but we've never read the Thanksgiving version. This is one we'll have to add to the library this year. 

More Thanksgiving Titles:

Balloons Over Broadway: Being from New York I loved this book that told the history of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (which I knew none of until I read this). The pictures are beautiful, the historical events are told in simple ways for young readers, and I even welled up a few tears as I was reading this to Jay. There aren't any sad parts... I think it was just "I miss New York in the fall".

Arthur's Thanksgiving: Arthur is assigned to be the director of the school's Thanksgiving play, but what is he to do when no one wants to play the most important role of the Thanksgiving turkey?


The Night Before Thanksgiving: You guys all knew this book from Natasha Wing was going to be on here right? The only book I purchased this month and it found it's home next to the rest of the collection on our bookshelf.

Halloween is undoubtedly going to look different this year than it has in the past. I've typically always been involved in school activities, parades, parties, all the fun things leading up to Halloween. This year I'm making myself more of a support role and helping when possible and if needed. I made these Kids Halloween Coloring pages that can easily be printed off and sent to school with my kids if their teachers need something for a class party. Otherwise I'll just have a fun activity I can do at home with the kids over the weekend.

Kids Halloween Coloring Pages

These kids halloween coloring pages come as a group of six. I tried to have a variety of monsters, bats and spiders, while also keeping some of them cute and fun as well. My personal favorite happens to be the Halloween coloring page with the cauldron and the candy, but I also love the page with the monsters as well.

With the ink that comes in the box, you can print 4,500 color pages and 7,000 black and white pages before having to buy more ink! For our family this printer will pay for itself in less than six months! We have zero regrets about this printer!

Holiday Guest Bathroom Essentials

This shop has been compensated by Inmar Intelligence and its advertiser, Angel Soft®. All opinions are mine alone. #AngelSoftScentedTube


Derek and I have been working hard the last few months to slowly transform some of the spaces in our new home. As the holidays approach and we have family coming in from out of town for various occasions, it was important for us to have a guest bathroom setup. There are definitely some guest bathroom essentials that I feel every house needs to ensure family and friends have exactly what they'll need and never run into an uncomfortable situation.

Guest Bathroom Essentials:

The first guest bathroom essential that you need toilet paper, and plenty of it. No one ever wants to be caught in the bathroom having to make the uncomfortable plea for help. My number one biggest tip is to have a basket of toilet paper well stocked on the back of the toilet so that it's easily accessible for anyone to access as needed.

We recently started using the Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender Scented Tube and Angel Soft® with Fresh Linen Scented Tube  available at Family Dollar. This is a great option for a guest bathroom because it's a 2 for 1 product. You get the benefits of soft and strong toilet paper while also having a nice pleasant scent added to the tube for you and your family to enjoy. 

The scent is added to the cardboard tube to give off a light, pleasant scent in the bathroom​. The Angel Soft® with Fresh Linen Scented Tube brings just a hint of that clean, classic scent all year ‘round, while the Fresh Lavender Scented Tube features the same soft and strong qualities you love with the added scent of fresh lavender in the tube. Between these two scents you're sure to find the perfect fit for your family!

Stocking A Guest Bathroom:

Other guest bathroom essentials that you'll need are simple touches that will make the biggest difference. On the shelves above our toilet I added some small jars of cotton balls and cotton swabs in case anyone needs them. Another huge thing I wanted to make sure we were stocked on was feminine products. There is nothing worse than visiting family and being caught off guard without them. We added a small acrylic container inside one of our bathroom drawers and stocked it with pantyliners, tampons, and even hair-ties.

Other things we made sure to stock up on were travel sized tooth brushes, tooth paste, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Having all these things on hand will give peace of mind to not only Derek and I, but to our guests in case they find themselves in a situation where they left something they needed at home.

Guest Bathroom Decor Ideas:

When decorating your guest bathroom, I find sticking to a neutral color pallete to be best. For this bathroom we stuck with gray and white linens to give everything a calm and neutral feel. This way when it comes time for the holidays we can add in a few festive touches without having to overhaul the entire space.

The Best Specialty Pet Products

Pumpkin Treats From Fruitables:

If you're a pumpkin lover and need all things pumpkin spice in your life during the holiday season, you should definitely project those feelings onto your dog, right? Fruitables places a huge emphasis on fresh ingredients and animal health. Their Pumpkin Spice Skinny Minis are made with pumpkin, baked apple, and cinnamon, and are a low calorie indulgence for your pet you can feel good about.

The Pumpkin and Cranberry treats smell like muffins straight from the oven. We had so much fun playing with Chester and letting him try these treats. Our dog is actually extremely picky when it comes to dog treats (we've literally never found one he likes before these), and he ate several of these very quickly after we opened the package. I'm so glad to have found something he enjoys that also happens to be made with wholesome ingredients.

Best Pet Vacuum Cleaner:

If you're in the market for the best pet vacuum cleaner for hard wood floors, we've been loving the FloorRover Dash from Eureka! When we moved into our new home this summer, we realized how hard it was to keep hard floors looking clean. We'd always had carpet in our main living areas previously, and quickly learned that it must have been hiding a lot of our messy sins.

Our hardwood floors show all the dirt and dog hair really easily, and I found myself going crazy with sweeping and trying to stay on top of it all. The FloorRover Dash from Eureka is perfect for pet owners who need a deep clean on all of their hard floor and carpeted surfaces. 

Specialty pet products. Best pet toys for Christmas. What to get your pet for Christmas. Christmas gifts for dogs. Best pet cleaning products. Best vacuum for pet owners. What to buy for your pet. What yo get your pet for Christmas. #pets #christmas #Petproducts #gifting

Some of my favorite features are the HEPA filter which traps allergens that can stay in carpets and in the home. I also love the 12ft cord making it effortless for me to vacuum large open spaces without plugging and unplugging repeatedly. The FloorRover Dash is the best pet vacuum cleaner in my book, and is available at Walmart for only $159 which is an amazing price for this high quality vacuum cleaner.

Disinfecting Wipes from LemiShine:

I used to not be a huge fan of disinfecting wipes until I bought some on a whim a few months ago, and after having the luxury once I've become too comfortable and want them in my life all the time. I love the disinfecting wipes from LemiShine because they kill 99.9% of germs, including bacteria that cause Covid-19. LemiShine disinfecting wipes have been used in hospitals nationwide for over 10 years, and are now available to consumers at HEB and Kroger stores, and soon to be nationwide.

I love that these eco-friendly cleaning products are made from plant-based ingredients and don't leave harsh toxic chemicals on our home surfaces long after they've been used. As a mom to both a fur baby, and real human babies, this is a huge priority for me when bringing any disinfecting products into our home. 

Stain and Odor Remover From Kids 'n' Pets:

Lets's be real: kids and pets are both super messy. Whether it's your child spilling something on your couch, or your puppy bringing in muddy paws from outside, messes are inevitable. We have been longtime fans of Kids 'n' Pets. I love that their natural, non-toxic enzyme based formula breaks down biodegradable messes such as dirt, grass, blood, urine, etc... without the use of harsh chemicals, making it safe for your pets and children, while also not having to worry about it ruining the integrity of your carpets, sofas, or hard surfaces. Kids 'n' Pets can be purchased at Walmart and Home Depot.

iDig from iFetch:

We shamelessly have one of the laziest dogs in the world. I know a lot of people have dogs that are super high energy and need to go on walks for miles and miles each day, but that has never really been our dog... thankfully. In an effort to help him get some more exercise we tried out the new iDig from iFetch with him and it was actually a pretty big hit! The iDig is a digging toy that has three flaps that you can hide toys and treats inside, and it stimulates your dogs mentally and physically, while satiating their innate desire to dig.

I was actually surprised by how fast our dog caught onto the idea and he may or may not have eaten quite a few dog treats in the process. This would be such a perfect dog gift for anyone you know who might be getting themselves a cute puppy under their tree this holiday season... or anyone with a dog for that matter!

How to Paint Bathroom Cabinets

 Painting bathroom cabinets is a pretty simple weekend project that only has three simple steps. If you can tape, sand, and paint, you can paint bathroom cabinets.


Derek and I are no stranger to painting cabinets. We've hired it out and paid someone else to do it, we've done it on our own with a paint sprayer, and we've painted by hand twice. I can honestly say my preferred method so far has been painting them by hand on our own.

We paid professionals to paint our kitchen cabinets in Georgia, and they started chipping basically the same week they were done. When we bought our last house before this current one, we used a paint sprayer for our cabinets but it left them with a weird texture that can happen if you're not an expert with a paint sprayer and know exactly how to dial it in correctly. 

How to paint bathroom cabinets. How to paint bathroom cabinets without sanding. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Waterproof paint for bathroom cabinets. How to seal painted bathroom cabinets. #diy #Home #Bathroom #remodel #Paint #cabinets

We've done this hand painting method twice now and both times we've had consistent even results, no chipping, and it's held up perfectly! 

How to Paint Bathroom Cabinets:

To paint bathroom cabinets you're going to tape off all the walls. Unscrew the doors and drawers, sand everything down, wipe with a tak cloth, and then paint with 2-3 coats of your favorite satin finish paint. After everything is dried you'll reassemble your vanity, and you're finished! It really is such a simple project and the results have turned out perfectly for us the two times we've done this project. 

What Supplies Do You Need To Paint Bathroom Cabinets?

Best Paint for Bathroom Cabinets:

We've used Behr Marquee Satin Enamel (color matched to Benjamin Moore Hale Navy) paint from The Home Depot for both of the bathroom vanities in our current home. It's a paint and primer in one which is why we don't prime the cabinets in this project, so it saves you that step. The finish holds up really well in the bathroom and wipes clean easily without being way too shiny like a semigloss paint. This paint was recommended to me by someone else who has used and loved it, and although we only have three months of wear on the paint at the time of writing this, I can say that we have no chips or issues! I'll be sure to come back and update this over time, but we're super happy with how this is holding up!

Complete Steps for Painting Bathroom Cabinets:

To paint bathroom cabinets, you're first going to need to tape off your vanity from the floor, the walls, and the counter top above it. This will ensure you get nice crisp lines, and that you won't get paint where you don't want it. 

After everything is taped off, remove the doors and drawers and put all their accompanying screws into a zip lock bag. This way you'll have them when you need to reassemble everything later. 


With those things out of the way you're ready to start sanding. You're going to sand down your doors, drawers, and base cabinet with 220 grit sand paper. This is enough to take the old finish off of the cabinet, and will give the new paint something to grab onto. 

How to paint bathroom cabinets. How to paint bathroom cabinets without sanding. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Waterproof paint for bathroom cabinets. How to seal painted bathroom cabinets. #diy #Home #Bathroom #remodel #Paint #cabinets

Once you're done sanding everything really well, you'll grab a tak cloth to wipe everything down. The tak cloth is a super sticky piece of fabric that will grab and wipe away all the sanded sawdust so that it doesn't ruin your paint finish. 

Next take your doors and drawers out to the garage and set them onto painter tripods. This keeps them up off the ground while you're painting, but doesn't leave an imprint in the paint of your door or drawer. You'll need four painter tripods per door/drawer so that everything has a stable surface while you're working. 


Now you're ready to paint! I use a two inch angle brush to get into the detailed edging on the cabinet doors, and areas on the vanity that the roller is too large for and cannot reach. Once I've brushed everything in with my angled brush, I use the 4 inch foam paint roller for the rest. Always start on the backside of your cabinet doors and drawers so that the last coat you finish is on the front.

I find it best to start with the vanity, and then go out to the garage to paint the doors and drawers, and then go back inside to paint the vanity again, and then back to the garage to flip the doors and drawers over and paint their other side. This just helps to keep everything moving and so that I'm not constantly washing brushes in between coats a million times. 

How to paint bathroom cabinets. How to paint bathroom cabinets without sanding. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Waterproof paint for bathroom cabinets. How to seal painted bathroom cabinets. #diy #Home #Bathroom #remodel #Paint #cabinets

Always paint with thin coats to ensure a smooth finish and allow for about an hour of dry time between coats before starting your next coat. I have never sanded in between coats, but if you have lines and feel like you need to, then sand between coats. Just know I didn't and I don't regret that decision.

Once everything has three coats of paint and has had plenty of time to dry and your doors, drawers, and vanity are not sticky to the touch, reassemble your vanity. After we paint a vanity we always put felt furniture pad stickers on the inside of the corner of the doors to ensure the painted door won't stick to the painted vanity. 

Note: We did not use a top coat to finish these. We didn't on our bathroom in our last house and they held up fine, and these ones so far have held up fine without as well. 


That is everything you need to know about how we painted our bathroom cabinets! Like I've said, we've tried all the methods so far and this has by far been the easiest method with the best results for us. I think we're planning on doing the same method for our kitchen cabinets in the next few months!
