With Thanksgiving right around the corner and everyone posting what they are thankful for everywhere it got me thinking about Thanksgiving Traditions. My family does not really have any set traditions, but I have been trying to start some with my kids. The past few years I have been the one cooking the turkey for my family. So with me doing that it gives me a chance to start some traditions with my children.
One thing all the kids did to help with Thanksgiving when I was growing up make the desserts or help with them. So I have started that as a tradition with my own children. I love baking as much as I do cooking and my children have showed that same love. Bubba is oldest to help the most and loves it when he gets to help with anything in the kitchen.
I love to let the kids make their Thanksgiving placemats for the Thanksgiving dinner. I will be posting about how to help your children make their own Thanksgiving placemats very soon. The kids really enjoy making their placements and using them on Thanksgiving.
What are some Thanksgiving Traditions that your family has? I would love to hear about them...
