As a family with a young child, it’s possible that you’re starting to shape new traditions together. If you’re looking for some fun ideas, we’re sharing below some that are easy to implement into your busy schedule.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
At 9:00AM on Thanksgiving morning, NBC broadcasts its annual parade showcasing balloon floats that are sure to mesmerize and most importantly, the arrival of Santa Claus!
Many families in our area are struggling, and we do our best to help our local community. Participate in our adoption/collection (connect with us for more information) or volunteer as a family this season at a shelter or kitchen. Even if you can’t volunteer on Thanksgiving itself, locations like this are always in need of donations and extra hands.
Make a Gratitude Tree
In the spirit of the harvest and also acknowledging gratitude, why not combine the two and make a Gratitude Tree wall art for your dining room? Just get a piece of poster board and draw a tree and its branches. Then, cut out construction paper leaves that everyone can write what they are most grateful for this year. Even though your little ones might need some prompting, you’ll be surprised what they come up with … time to melt hearts!
Collect Family Recipes
We all have a relative whose recipe we look forward to each holiday season… why not document those? Have your little one help with the artwork for the recipe book, and put together a little composition of family favorites.
