Roundup : : 20 Family Activities

Here in the United States it is the week of Thanksgiving, when many gather with family and reflect on things they are grateful for. Keeping with our month of gratitude, we have decided to have a quiet week – we will still be posting photos of gratitude throughout the week, but bigger posts and projects will be put on hold. We encourage you, too, to take this week to be with your family – to laugh and love, to reflect on this month of gratitude, and even to craft some connections.

Just because we will be a bit more quiet around here doesn’t mean that there’s nothing for you to do! Here is a roundup of 20 fun projects, books, and recipes to help keep you and your family busy – enjoy!
