Depending on your child’s age, prepping just a few things ahead of time can make all the difference and bring joy back to a family tradition. One of my favorite things to make ahead is pie dough. When it’s time to get in the kitchen to make Thanksgiving pies with my kids, I pull out one or two rounds for “serious” pie making, and another one that my littlest can play with.
