Thanksgiving is one of the greatest time of the year. Family gather around a bountiful dinner and share moments of thankfulness. The act of togetherness is the greatest part, and finding the a fun Thanksgiving activities for the family will do just that.
During the Thanksgiving break or right after a delicious turkey feast, a lot of people focus on shopping. Shopping, though, isn’t always the fun family activity that all members could enjoy together. Instead, here are some fun, family friendly alternatives if you want to try something different:
Tree Lighting Ceremonies
Every year, a ceremony is held to welcome Christmas joy and festivies. In most cities, tree lighting ceremonies happen either on the day of or the day after Thanksgiving. What a way to kick of the Christmas holiday by gathering, listening to music, and joining in the festivities, then watching a huge tree come to life with brilliant lights and decorations.
Gathering the family and having fun and laughs on the ice seems like a perfect after Thanksgiving dinner activity! It may be chilly out, but this activity can be done either indoor or outdoors, depending on what’s available in your city. Rinks open during early November, and they may have special events available during the Thanksgiving break.
If you or your kids or another family member happened to snap some family photos, save the memories in a holiday themed scrap book. Using Fall colors and witty captions, all the fun and endearing moments with family can be put together beautifully and shown off over the years.
Decorating for Christmas
Right after Thanksgiving could be a good time to begin decorating for the upcoming holiday. This way, you can get this part done way earlier and still have a great time with the family.
There are a lot of games that kids enjoy. Indoor or outdoor, there is great fun to be had! Find one that everyone loves and have a good time! During this time of year, football happens to be a fave.
Which ever you and your family choose to do, enjoy the holiday with your family. Happy Thanksgiving from Camperoo!
