Thanksgiving is one of the few chances we can break from our busy schedules, gather with our families, and give thanks for our bountiful blessings. Be it fun or unusual, creative and crafty, or sharing the love with those in need, families and groups of friends develop their own Thanksgiving traditions passing them down to each generation. With so much to be grateful for, Dwayne offers tips on how to get kids involved in keeping and making holiday traditions to last a lifetime.
In times like these, Dwayne shifts perspectives toward the blessings he is most grateful for. Kick off the holiday season with a crafty activity that gets the whole family involved, and dress up your Thanksgiving table with your thanks. All you need is a white fabric tablecloth and colorful fabric markers. Have your family members and guests scribe what they’re most grateful for. Whether with doodles or heartfelt notes, this is a chance to slow down with the family, get creative, and reflect on what really matters most. By the time the meal ends, you’ll have a reusable keepsake to build upon for years to come.
The spirit of Thanksgiving is all about showing grace for your good fortune. Express your thanks and spread kindness by getting the whole family involved in donating to those in need. It’s important to donate with intention, so try picking a unified item that everyone pulls from their belongings. Get the kids involved by allowing them to pick what gets donated. Clothing such as shorts and t-shirts, sweatshirts, and shoes are great ideas. Put the “giving” in Thanksgiving with these small acts of graciousness and goodwill.
