What are YOU Thankful for?

Thanksgiving: a day to stuff yourself with turkey, watch football games, and indulge in pumpkin pie. But Thanksgiving is more than that. It’s a day to be thankful, and what better way to show you are thankful than with your kids. Whether you’re a new parent or a parenting pro, it’s always fun to incorporate new traditions into your holidays.

This year when your whole family is sitting around the table about to say what they are thankful for, hand them a marker! Come Thursday, try this with your family and you’ll even have a keepsake to cherish for Thanksgivings to come.

What you will need:

A paper tablecloth

Different colored markers

You and your family!


Everyone sits down to dinner and writes what they are thankful for this year.


Bonus: Make a scrapbook with the tablecloths from each Thanksgiving at your house!
