From Amanda Rock, your About Parenting Editor
There is a lot happening next week! The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah begins on Wednesday. And a week from today, it's likely you'll be surrounded by good food and family, celebrating Thanksgiving. For those of you who are hosting these holidays, the time to start getting ready is now!

Kid-Friendly Thanksgiving Recipes
My preschooler, Mr. S., is a very picky eater, especially at dinnertime. While I never like to have food fights with him, I especially don't want to do it on Thanksgiving. So while we have our traditional dishes that we eat on turkey day, I'm going to try to mix in some of these recipes from Stephanie that appeal to all celebrants, both young and old.

How to Get Older Kids Involved in Thanksgiving Planning
I also have a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old who want to really help this year. If I was hosting Thanksgiving at home, I would definitely put them to work, I mean involve them in the Thanksgiving preparation. Still, we are in charge of desserts, so I can definitely find things for them to do. Jennifer's got some great tips too.

10 Thanksgiving Activities for Families
Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is not all about food! Teach your kids (and other family members too) about this important holiday with these fun and educational activities from Amanda.

Hanukkah Family Fun
The eight days and nights that Hanukkah is celebrated is a wonderful opportunity for families and friends to come together and make memories that will last a lifetime. Carol has put together a great list of activities that everyone in your family can take part in from the first night to the last.
