We have been talking about about gratitude and being thankful this holiday season. One simple way that you can your kids can reflect is to have them write out what they are thankful for. So, before the rounds of endless food, print out these fun printables as you and your family reflect on what this time of year is really about.
Setting a Thanksgiving Table
I like to get the kids involved with Thanksgiving prep. One place they can start is with the table setting.
- Start with a placemat or tablecloth
- Place plates around table
- Place napkin to the left of the setting with the fork, knife (blade facing the fork) and spoon placed in that order on top of the napkin. An alternative: Place fork on top of napkin. To the right of the plate, add the knife (blade facing in toward the fork and plate) and a spoon (if necessary) set to the right of the knife.
- The water glass is placed above the knife or at 45 degree angle to the right of the knife.
- Add name cards.
