Our Thanksgiving Family Night


Our Thanksgiving Family Fun Night

Tell the story of Thanksgiving.

Let the kids check out books from the library
about Thanksgiving and read them together.

Cook a Thanksgiving feast together.
 In our house, each kid picks a side and dessert.
 We normally make baked chicken with cranberry sauce
 to go with all their food picks.

Make "I am thankful" cards with strips of paper.
The kids write what they are thankful for and why.
We have a secret plan for these. :)
You can use them to make a garland!
We used this printable this year.
