Though Thanksgiving dinner might be one of life’s most pleasurable indulgences, the real beauty is in the quality time spent with family, friends, and loved ones. Thanksgiving weekend gives us a perfect excuse to wind down, disconnect, and focus on the important things in life - Lo.Co style. If you’re not traveling or packing your schedule with events, it’s also the perfect time to simply relax at home and enjoy some fun, creative projects with your family during your downtime. Below, we’ve linked a few wonderful ideas of Thanksgiving-themed activities that adults and kids of all ages can have fun doing together:
- Family Tree: Family should be the focus of the holiday season, so it’s a perfect time to gather everyone around and create a family tree to visualize your roots! Family trees can be personalized in so many ways, and a great way for telling stories and making memories! Here are a few family trees that are both fun to make and beautiful to look at:
- Tree of Gratitude: Though we should all strive to be grateful year-round, we also know life tends to get in the way. We don’t always remember to take a little time to show gratitude or communicate exactly what we are thankful for. The tree-of-gratitude asks each family member to write down a few things they are thankful for, display them in a high-traffic area of your home, to serve as a daily reminder. Keep a few blank leaves and writing tools accessible so you can add on throughout the weeks any time you feel thankful for something worthy! We love these ideas:
- Fall Garland: If you’re lucky enough to live in a state where you see the seasons change, you can collect natural leaves of all colors and create a beautiful garland to hang in your home for the last few weeks of fall. Otherwise, you can buy leaves or other supplies at a craft store and get creative! Any of these would add a fun splash of color to your home:
We would love to hear how you spend your holidays and some of your favorite craft ideas!
