  2. The Thankful Pumpkin - This is another cute way to talk about what our thankful pumpkinfamily is thankful for. All you need is a pumpkin and a sharpie. Each day at dinner, leading up to thanksgiving, talk about what your family is thankful for and write it on the pumpkin.



  3. Thanksgiving Family Journal - This activity is all about coming together as a family to work on a thanksgiving bookjoint project as well as giving thanks. As a family you create, decorate and share your artistic talents together. Then you all write what you are thankful for at the moment.
