Focus on Your Family
KID’S HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES
Focus, focus, focus on the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. (See the Family Devotion section for a family devotion holiday book)
As you gather around the table for the Thanksgiving, take time to remember the things God has given you. Have each family member around the table tell one thing for which they are thankful. Record the conversation on video or tape recorder. Be sure to state the year and who is present. It’s a wonderful family keepsake for future generations to hear or view.
Forget fancy tablecloths. Cover the table with a white plastic tablecloth. Place markers on the table. Have family members use the markers to write what they are thankful for. Keep the cloth and put out again the following Thanksgiving. Record the conversation and memories that takes place and take photos. Add the present year’s thanksgivings to last year’s thanks.
