Get wonderful ideas for Thanksgiving traditions to

Grandma's Special Thanksgiving Apron

The Family Gratitude Journal
Each year at our Thanksgiving dinner we have to share what we're thankful for. Unlike many families that go around the table and say what they are thankful for, we write our thanks down in the Family...
The Wish Bone
In our family it's always tradition to break the wish bone from the Thanksgiving turkey. We all play some kind of game (like guessing the number closest to Mom's number) to see what two people actually get to...

A Handpainted Turkey Plate
Every year for the past several years, my son and I have painted a "turkey hand" plate at the local you-paint-it pottery shop. We paint his hand and press it into the center of a plate, then decorate the...
A Tree from Grandpa Ned
My husbands' late grandfather owns several acres of land 3 hours away. Every Thanksgiving, our family carefully selects that one special tree to bring home with us. That very night, we put up the...
Throwing the Pigskin
Much like the Kennedys, we play football after the Thanksgiving meal. Unlike the Kennedys, we have to be aware of the dangers of exposed sprinkler heads and make sure not the hit a car with an errant pass...
Cutting Snowflakes on Thanksgiving
When I very young we didn't have much money for fancy holiday decorations. So after we ate our Thanksgiving lunch my mom suggested that we make some Christmas decorations ourselves. Unfortunately...
Thanksgiving Placecards
I host the family Thanksgiving every year at my house. At each table setting I put a pen and a placecard with the name, year and the words "I'm thankful for..." Everyone is asked to write one thing they...
Family Pictionary
Every Thanksgiving we divide the family into two teams and play a very competitive game of Pictionary. We have a gigantic pad of white paper that we place on a large easel so everyone can see. We have a...
