One of the best things about Thanksgiving is seeing family members and friends that you may not haven’t seen in a while and catching up right where you left off. It is a perfect time to make fun memories and reconnect with your love ones. Thanksgiving isn’t just about watching the big game and eating great food. To make this holiday more memorable here are some great family activities to do this Thanksgiving.

  1. Volunteer: Family volunteering strengthens families and it helps the younger members appreciate what they have and develop compassion and empathy towards others. Volunteering as a family is a great way to give back to the community while making great memories. After all, Thanksgiving is the time to remember what we are thankful for. You can work together at a soup kitchen, clean a park together or just offer to help a neighbor by racking their leaves.
