Maybe your child would like to help with food preparation. Here are a few websites with easy recipes for kids - there are lots more online!
Two Ingredient Cream Biscuits: https://addapinch.com/two-ingredient-cream-biscuit-recipe/#axzz30oMVd89O
Apple Pie Bites (I'm going to make these myself!)

Calls for a bag of Candy Corn or Harvest Mix but I bet you don’t need it.
My favorite thing to make with kids is butter! Heavy cream in a jar, shaken vigorously for several minutes. Just past the whipped cream(!) stage, the cream will separate into a lump of butter and a bit of buttermilk. Take out the lump, mix in a little salt, and put it in a small bowl on your table. Believe me, your child will be so proud when that butter is passed for rolls, potatoes, etc. If you need a recipe, there's one here: https://buggyandbuddy.com/make-butter/

This year, I am thankful that our community is supporting the library and each other. I'm thankful that kids have resources and adults who are committed to helping them grow and learn in and outside of school. I'm thankful that there is hope for a time when we can all be together again as we were before.
Have a safe and a memorable holiday with your family.
