What does Thanksgiving look like for your family? Do you gather around a turkey or a pile of pizzas? Are you surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, or do you get together with friends? Whatever your past traditions have been, this year may look a little differently. Whether it’s in-person or virtually, whether it’s with people you’ve known all your life or friends you’ve just met, we want you to help you be intentional about making sure fun, connection, and giving thanks are part of your meal as well—for the youngest to the oldest.
We’ve created four different placemats for four different age groups. They are available in:
• Middle School
• High School/Adult
Download these PDF files, and print them out on your home printer on legal size paper. (The placemats are 8.5×14 size pages.) Then place the appropriate-age placemat in front of that person on your Thanksgiving table. Make sure you put some colored pencils, pens, or crayons on the table too.
