It’s Playtime is one of my favorite traditions! Each Thursday I get to feature my favorite play-time posts – as linked up in our weekly kids meme. Are you looking for something fun to do between meals and gluttony over this Thanksgiving weekend? Maybe some of these brain-building activities will keep your kids occupied and having fun.

Scrap wood can become treasured outdoor toys. Allison and her kids had fun creating roads out of planks of wood in her back yard.
Thanks to all of you who contributed this past week. Be sure to visit my co-hosts who graciously share this “party” with me each week!
