Don't Fall into the holiday's weight gain trends!
The holiday is a war zone for dieters. I mean how can’t it be!? We have Thanksgiving where the average meal contains 4000 calories. Then holiday parties where cookies, finger foods and eggnog’s are hard to resist, and top it off with a booze fest for New Years Eve, followed by a lazy new years day filled with football beer, pizza and wings. So why do we torture ourselves each holiday and gain extra weight only to feel miserable, lazy, and exhausted when the New Year hits? Is ...

This yummy craft comes from Macaroni Kid Publisher Mignon G. It's the perfect activity to do with your children and quick and easy enough for you to do for any Thanksgiving parties you may have!
