Over the river and through the maze

Make the Thanksgiving trip to Grandma’s an even more amazing experience. Print out a holiday maze and let kids help a pilgrim boy and girl reach a steaming pumpkin pie. In the U.S. President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the first “official” Thanksgiving holiday in 1863 during the Civil War. Kids in the U.S. might find it interesting that their Canadian neighbors to the north celebrate their Thanksgiving—also a national holiday--on the second Monday of October.
