Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year to spend with family and friends and celebrate the season. However, if you’re looking for ways to spice up your Thanksgiving celebrations, we have a couple of festive ideas for you and your family to try this year!
1. Give back this Thanksgiving
There are lots of ways to give back to your community or to local or national non-profits. This is just another great way to help teach kids the art of gratitude and build their character.
2. Get your kids to be grateful
Spend about 10 -15 minutes as a family sharing what you’re thankful for. Encourage your kids to think beyond being thankful for their toys (although these are things to be grateful for too!). Jot down what everyone shares and save them someplace safe. Then next year you can re-read them together and remember all that you were thankful for!
3. Make festive crafts with the kids
4. Pumpki-fy your snack time
Instead of pumpkin pie – try a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. Pumpkins are packed full of good for you nutrients like Vit. A and is low in calories. Your kids will love the smooth texture and sweet comforting flavors.
