Christmas Thanksgiving Activities

If you're hosting a family thanksgiving, you want to create a fun family environment that helps children understand the importance of thankfulness and reminds the adults of  this as well.  

Since Thanksgiving comes just before what many refer to as the "greedy" season, activities designed to remind people of the bounty in their lives are useful. For example, you might help children understand that while they don't have everything they want, they do have everything they need.  

How do you do this? Several ways. One is to help children create a cornucopia, which will sit on the Thanksgiving table. There are a variety of ways to do this. You can make a papier-mâché cornucopia using a balloon as the base to help you get the shape started. You can simply take large piece of poster board and shape them into a cone and fill those with whatever you like. As an extra activity, you can have the children decorate the cornucopia before it gets filled.

Since the idea of the cornucopia is to celebrate a bounty and appreciate that bounty, you can fill it as is traditionally done with squash, corn and the like. You might also ask each member of the family to bring something that represents their personal bounty in life. A new mom might bring a baby blanket to put in the cornucopia while a newly retired grandpa might add a picture of his family, since that's what's most important to him. You can discuss the items in the cornucopia basket at the dinner table while enjoying your Thanksgiving feast.

Another family activity that kids like is the thankfulness jar. When each person arrives at dinner, they place a note with something they are thankful for in the jar. Ideally, each person will add more than one item to the jar. At dinner, someone (ideally, the matriarch of patriarch of the family) reads the notes. Everyone tries to figure out who wrote which note. The items can range from the serious (someone who struggled with an illness in the previous year might be thankful for life, quite simply) to the silly (the new mom might be thankful there's a Starbucks within 5 minutes of her home). Kids enjoy adding their own touches to the thankfulness jar and their responses are often a surprise to the adult family members.

Some families have several tables set about at Thanksgiving. Many people buy professional floral arrangements to decorate the tables. You can make a game out of it to figure out who's going to get to bring home the table arrangement to their home. You can do the old wedding thing and simply put a number on the bottom of the centerpiece and have someone's chair match that number or you can make a game and perhaps create a trivia game out of Thanksgiving facts.

Be sure you research and know the answers and then quiz everyone. This is a great way to pass the time while everyone is waiting for the feast to be ready. Just tell the winners they can't take the centerpieces until dinner is over!
You can have a similar game before dessert. Create a family trivia game and quiz family members before dessert. Only the people who get the answers right get to have their dessert. 

To add much more enjoyable to this movement, make another family custom that will yearly run with the tree cutting. It tends to be as straightforward as likewise eating (at a similar place every year) and grabbing treat to eat in the vehicle in transit home. You may likewise add a shopping outing to the day; after the tree is sheltered at home in a basin of water, you may all go shopping as a family for some new decorations. 

Other fun family exercises can incorporate yearly visits to specific places in your locale. Does your town have a yearly "Christmas tree path" where every one of the homes on one road beautify (now and then in a ludicrous manner) for the occasions? You can make a custom of driving down the road every year, or strolling the whole road, if the climate permits. Strolling allows the children to see a portion of the points of interest of the different stylistic theme things. 

Numerous kids think hot cocoa is a fundamental piece of the Christmas season. In the event that that is the situation with yours, you could begin a fun family movement every year where you make a major cluster of hot cocoa blend toward the beginning of the season. Give the children a chance to have a little glass every prior night bed amid the period of December and closer to Christmas, add uncommon things to the hot cocoa, similar to smaller than normal marshmallows one night and whipped cream another. Make certain to leave this family-made hot cocoa for Santa Clause on Christmas Eve! 

At a specific age, youngsters appreciate designing their space for the occasions. One fun family Christmas action is to empower this adornment by giving the children a chance to search for things to put in their rooms and giving them a chance to do the enlivening. Make sure to take an image of them in their enhanced room every year. They'll appreciate taking a gander at the photos a seemingly endless amount of time. (*)
