We have curated a few fun activities for you to try out with your family and friends this Thanksgiving besides eating the feast. So try them out after devouring your Thanksgiving meal.
7 Fun Things To Try Out For Thanksgiving
1. Play A Gratitude Game
Isn't thanksgiving all about gratitude? Let each and every member of your family speak to his heart's content and thank for everything that makes him happy. This way you will know more about your family and help you connect with them better.
2. Plan A Photoshoot
In a world of Instagram and snapchat, documenting every tiny detail has become the need of the hour. So why not take advantage of the family gathering to arrange a beautiful photoshoot? Plan a theme and arrange for all the needed props, costumes and makeup to have a stunning photoshoot.
3. Revisit Old Memories
It's comforting to visit old memories and the best way to nurture the family. Try looking at old photographs and videos, maybe of your grandparent's wedding or your mother's and father's childhood. It will definitely bring back some golden moments and fun anecdotes from the older generations.
4. Do Charity
Thanksgiving is about giving and what better occasion to plan a charity event with your family! You may visit an old age home, a pet shelter or an orphanage together and plan an eventful evening with the less privileged. Read them books, donate clothes, cook them a meal or take art sessions and make the most of the family time together.
5. Know Your Heirloom
Every family has an heirloom dinner set, cutlery or a China showpiece at the centre table. which comes out only during feasts or when guests visit. Know more about such little treasures which may or may not be known to you.
6. Truth Or Dare
You may interview your family with the quirkiest of questions, which may not be very easy. This is a great way to spill some beans around family secrets and know more about your family. Or better to give them a dare and make them spill the beans instead!
7. Watch A Classic Movie Together
There is nothing better than watching a cosy winter classic wrapped in a heavy blanket with your family and sipping on some hot chocolate after a Thanksgiving feast. If you haven't tried it yet, please do.
We hope you spend this Thanksgiving in a fun way with your family.
