Harvesting New Traditions

Thanksgiving is more than just a feast; it's a time for family, gratitude, and the traditions that make this holiday special. As families evolve, so can our traditions. Consider incorporating some of these ideas to make your Thanksgiving gatherings even more memorable:

Grateful Acts Jar

Each family member writes down a small act of kindness they’ve done for someone else then the notes are shared anonymously during dinner. You can even make a game out of it and have family members guess who wrote each note!

Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt

Put together a scavenger hunt with clues related to gratitude, Thanksgiving history, or symbols of the season. Let family members work together or compete in teams to solve the clues and find hidden treats or notes of appreciation.

Outdoor Activities

If the weather permits, go outside! Play a family-friendly game of touch football or take a nature walk. Physical activities not only encourage bonding but also provide an opportunity to burn off some of those extra calories!

Potluck Feast

Change up the traditional Thanksgiving meal into a potluck, allowing each family member to contribute their favorite dish. This not only eases the workload for the host but also lets everyone show off their cooking skills.

Thanksgiving Time Capsule

Create a time capsule for Thanksgiving. Have each family member contribute an item or a note representing what they're thankful for this year. Store the capsule away and open it next Thanksgiving to reminisce and add new items.

Craft CornerFamily Thanksgiving Crafts

Set up a craft station where family members can create Thanksgiving-themed DIY projects. From gratitude journals to decorating seasonal ornaments or making homemade centerpieces, it’s a fun way to be creative and leaves everyone with a little keepsake to cherish.

Thanksgiving traditions go beyond food. It’s a day to create meaningful connections and memories. Try one of these traditions or create your own to infuse your Thanksgiving gatherings with warmth, gratitude, and togetherness. These moments spent with loved ones will be treasured for years to come.

Happy Thanksgiving, from all of us at Medcom.
