Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’re all able to enjoy this relationship-focused holiday with your loved ones! I want to share a quote with you from a friend of mine on Facebook: “Enjoy not competing over the best gifts, the most eggs, the biggest box of candy or the most illegal fireworks. Savor time with your loved ones at a table filled with love, joy, kindness and hope, regardless of what’s being eaten, what you’re wearing or who brought potatoes with a hair in it (they didn’t mean to). And if the fruit of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control) is missing from your table, be the change!”
While you’re happily buzzing about the kitchen and dining room preparing this epic meal, allow and invite the children to participate and help out in creating that atmosphere of gratitude and teamwork. This list of ideas and free printables from Creative with Kids should be a great resource to you today in coming up with ways the kids can contribute to all the activities today!
