Things to Do on Thanksgiving with Your Family

Happy Thanksgiving in Grand Prairie, Texas

Although Thanksgiving offers heaping piles of delicious food and time with family and friends, there are other activities and things to do on Thanksgiving that will create lasting memories with your loved ones.


  • Watch something together: Whether it be the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, football, or a movie, sit back and relax with family. Spending time watching something together will surely create new memories, and perhaps establish a new holiday tradition! Make sure to pick something everyone will enjoy.


  • Keep everyone busy with crafts: Although typically reserved for children, making festive Thanksgiving crafts is something everyone can take part in. Make placemats or a table runner that you can bring out year after year, decorated with everyone’s turkey handprints or favorite leaves from the backyard. Making something together can be truly heartwarming and special.


  • Play games: After dinner and perhaps while planning your Black Friday route, play a board game with your family and friends. Few things are as fun as some friendly competition. If you’d like, you could pick a game with teams to add some rewarding camaraderie to the mix.


  • Give thanks: Find time at some point during the day to reflect on and share what you’re thankful for. For example, before your meal, go around the table and have everyone share something that they’re thankful for. This make warm memories as well as brings everyone closer together. We at Graff Chevrolet are thankful for the great community we serve.


Mix and match festive Thanksgiving activities to find the combination that works best for you, your family, and your friends. You’ll be thankful for the new memories you create.
