Looking to get the kids away from their screens and engaging with the family this Thanksgiving? Check out this list of fun screen-free Thanksgiving activities for kids!
I love Thanksgiving–it’s one of those holidays that people don’t seem to think about a lot… Or at least, retailers would prefer to squeeze it out with Halloween and Christmas.
But it’s really one of my favorites. We get to spend time with family, remember what God has done for us over the past year, and enjoy lots of really good food.
I think the family aspect of the holidays is so, so important. But with technology, it can be really easy to just let screen time drown out any time we spend together.
Here's another great way to keep the kids occupied at the table.
This coloring page comes "in 3 sizes that you can use to entertain and relax yourself (coloring page), to decorate your table and entertain your guests (coloring placemat) or even to send a personalized postcard with (coloring postcard)."
This is "a pretty craft for kids to do while studying Native American culture." And Thanksgiving is the perfect time to learn about Native Americans.
According to Native Hope, "Thanksgiving as a holiday originates from the Native American philosophy of giving without expecting anything in return. In the first celebration of this holiday, the Wampanoag tribe not only provided the food for the feast, but also the teachings of agriculture and hunting (corn, beans, wild rice, and turkey are some specific examples of foods introduced by Native Americans)."
Native Hope is a good place to learn more about the Native American experience of Thanksgiving and what it means to the different tribes.
