Extend the Fun

Younger kids: Encourage your child to make a turkey treat box for the family or friends you’re hosting or visiting this Thanksgiving. Then let your child decide what to put in the treat box. Try a small toy or a special handwritten note from your child or the whole family.       

Older kids: Have everyone in the family write down on a slip of paper one thing they’re thankful for this year. Ask your older child to collect the papers in this turkey box. Then, during your Thanksgiving meal, have your child share what people wrote. Make a new box each year (and give the turkey new feathers). Then you’ll have lots of sweet memories and notes.
