Fun Thanksgiving Ideas For Families
Turn Your Feast Focus From Food To Fun!

thanksgiving ideas

These fun Thanksgiving ideas come from our own Thanksgiving celebrations. For years Thanksgiving was celebrated at Grandma and Grandpa’s house! However, as the kids got older and the annual “Thanksgiving High School Football Game” hopped on our schedule, the tradition changed. Our house became the Thanksgiving gathering spot.  As you may have gathered from scanning this site, I am not a good cook, but I do know how to have fun! Our Thanksgiving celebrations have been re-directed from the nuances of complicated recipes to traditional fare and lots of fun and games. So scroll down and see our favorite family Thanksgiving traditions!
