Give Thanks Together!

Family Matters is a strong advocate for creating family memories and traditions because they bring us together. There is something wonderful about recalling traditions that warms the heart ♥  Thanksgiving is a the perfect holiday to create new traditions and to remember all that we’re grateful for. Here are some new ones you can do to help get your family started!


#1) Turkey on the Table

Turkey on the Table is an incredible company with a very heartfelt mission. They’re goal is to “turn ‘thankfulness’ into an activity, focusing on the things they have, and not the things they don’t.”

You can use this in a classroom, as a hostess gift, a centerpiece in your own home, or at work! Click here to read how this works! For each product sold, 10 meals will be provided to someone in need! They are a proud supporter of Feeding America. Click here to read more about their partnership with Feeding America.

#2) Thankful Wreath

This project is very conceptual which allows you to customize it to your liking!

Wrap a 12-inch Styrofoam wreath form with strips of fabric, securing them with ball-head straight pins.

Cut leaf shapes from card stock. Crease each leaf in half to add dimension.

To hang, pin a loop of string to the back of the wreath.




#3) Thankful Tree

A Thanksgiving thankful tree can be used as a Thanksgiving centerpiece. Invite family and friends to write what they are most thankful for on an ornament, real leaves or paper cut outs and place it on the branches 🙂 Get a couple of branches and trim them to fit in your vase! You can spray paint them gold, silver, or keep them in their natural beauty.
