Thanksgiving is all about family traditions, but if you’re sick of doing the same old thing, here are some new Thanksgiving traditions for the family looking to mix things up.
Make a Big Breakfast
Who wants to wait for dinner? Tide yourself over until the big meal later by indulging in a bigger-than-usual breakfast, all made from scratch.
Have Some “Me Time”
Some people get exhausted interacting with family all day. Before the big dinner, take some time to yourself to read a book, watch your favorite show, or go to a park.
Have Everyone Write Down Their “Thanks” – On the Table!
Instead of a tablecloth, try covering the table in butcher paper, then hand out pens to everyone. Have everyone write down what they’re thankful for during dinner.
Take a Walk as a Family
Now that your belly is full of delicious food, have everybody burn off the calories before dessert by going for a walk together.
Skype With Faraway Loved Ones
Is your family out-of-town? Use a program like Skype or Google Hangouts to get in touch during dinnertime!
