Enjoy the fun of creating crafts
When you were a kid you would definitely have tried your hands in craft making , in school or as a hobby. Now we hardly get time for such activities, but through Thanksgiving we can indulge in this fun filled task and relive those golden days of childhood, when even small little things used to be so pleasurable. Sit down with your kids or your siblings and with the help of some stationary items you can prepare Thanksgiving crafts like turkey decorative wall hangings, turkey paper napkins, turkey illuminations and carved pumpkin decorations and centrepieces. Enjoy a day with indulging in art.
Help the ladies in the kitchen
If you think that kitchen is only a woman’s domain , then seriously, it’s time to grow up, and take some lessons from the professional male chefs who are earning a living and making a mark for themselves in this arena. Thanksgiving involves cooking, cooking and lots of cooking , then how about lending a helping hand to the ladies of the household! Even if you are bad at it or do not know much, you can surely cut the vegetables, stuff or roast the turkey or at least manage the temperature of the microwave , surely you can’t be that bad. So share the mood of Thanksgiving by preparing the meals with all the members of the family.
Share the laughter with jokes
There are jokes and jibes for every occasion and Thanksgiving is no exception. For the entire day people remain busy in doing the preparations for the festive day, so after all that finishes you can have a leisure time cracking jokes and humor with your dear ones, and fill the entire festive day with laughter. The popular turkey jokes are an integral part of Thanksgiving humor, here is one for instance, “What’s the key to a great Thanksgiving dinner? Turkey!” , or another one, “In which country they don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (ironically)? Turkey!”. The one liner jokes with great humor for the festive day makes your Thanksgiving extremely entertaining.
Be creative and have a story time
Like there are jokes for every occasion, there are also stories or history behind any event. This Thanksgiving, you can have a nice story telling session with your entire family and this is one activity where any one, irrespective of age or temperament can participate with full swing. Share the stories of the Pilgrims at Plymouth and the First Thanksgiving with every one and you would not only have a nice time but also will have a very informative and knowledgeable session for the kids.
The dining table fun
The main part of the festival is the harvest meal, a perfect bounteous dinner where you can enjoy the delicacies by saying grace to God and raising a toast to everyone’s health.
