An Easy Thanksgiving Tradition For A Better Day With Your Family

Easy Thanksgiving Tradition

Thanksgiving traditions are a fun way to bond with your family. I love when I find a tradition that is easy and inexpensive.

I want my children to grow up and look back with fond memories and continue them with their own families.

Print the leaves and/or acorns below and cut them out –  don’t worry, they’re FREE. This is a great project for the kids. Have the kids color the leaves and acorns if you need a busy activity on Thanksgiving.

For each person at the table, you will each take one leaf and write what you are thankful about that person. I’d suggest white or silver gel pens if the leaves are colored so the ink shows better or write on the back of the leaves.

For example:

“I’m thankful for Aunt Sue because she always has a smile and kind word for everyone.”

Thankful Leaf Example

Place your leaves next to each place setting. Each person at the table should have a leaf from each person.

This tradition will be fun and takes the pressure off of your more introverted family members. The leaves can be taken home with each person as a memento.

Thanksgiving can be a lot of fun with very little effort! Here are a few ideas to keep everyone laughing and bonding on turkey day!

My Favorite Fun Thanksgiving Items:

Laughs are sure to start with this silly hat! You could use the “what” game to see who wears the hat. My kids love this silly game. If you can get someone to say, “What” they have to wear the hat. Get creative and change it up with turkey or another word for the day! Be sure to take photos!

Photo props are an easy way to get everyone in photos! Give one of the kids the job of photographer for the day and see what they come up with!

Thanksgiving Photo Booth Props

Littles love headbands! In this house the bigs do too!

How about some jokes? My uncles love a good joke and so do the kiddos!

I love homey signs in the kitchen and through out the house. This is a nice invitation to my table.
