At Home Family Fun:
Gianna’s family has a funny Thanksgiving tradition that she tells in her story Kordatzky Thanksgiving Adventure: Cousins v. The Adults.
She has shared more ideas for Thanksgiving at home here:
There is never a lot to do on Thanksgiving, but we can usually count on Como Zoo to be open (don’t forget you need to pre-register to visit this year). If that is too much to add to an already busy day, just get out for a walk around the neighborhood or play a game of football in the yard or nearby park.
Take a Bookflix break today and read along with Giving Thanks: A Native American Good Morning Message by Chief Jake Swamp and Thanksgiving by Trudi Strain Trueit.
- You probably don’t need our help thinking about what to eat today. However, if you do need a place to go to feed your family, the Salvation Army produced this list last year.
- If you would like to try something new, Anne shared a recipe for Thanksgiving Pumpkin Rice courtesy of Dining with Alice (a great website to search for more recipe ideas).
Dinner Conversation Starter: I can’t really top the Thanksgiving tradition of sharing what we are most grateful for.
According to MNopedia, the Minnesota Turkey industry began with small backyard flocks raised on family farms and became the top turkey-producing state in the country.
Bonus November 26 Holiday
November 26th is National Cake Day. In my family, this happens to be a busy birthday week, so cake is quite likely. One of our favorite books to read on birthdays is A Birthday Cake Is No Ordinary Cake by Debra Frasier.
