Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday. It’s one of the few holidays that isn’t quite as commercialized as others. The expectations are not nearly as high. Thanksgiving is all about family and food! In order to extend the fun, I have rounded up several Thanksgiving activities and ideas for families. Activities that you do as a family before the holiday help to create traditions and memories that your family will cherish forever! Your kids will also likely pass down some of the traditions.
