Fall is here and we couldn’t be more excited. I love the season of chunky knit sweaters and high boots (side note, coveting the suede over the knee boots that are everywhere, you?) But what I really love about this time of year is it always feels like the perfect time to get back to a consistent family schedule of school and activities. Plus, Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday of the year. I love everything about it—the food, the decor, the traditions and the time to be home and grateful for the simple things.
Speaking of gratefulness, I recently discovered Turkey on The Table. I always love tying in mindfulness to holidays, and this little guy is the perfect family activity that encourages gratitude and giving back. Each kit comes with a turkey, feathers and a book, and each purchase provides ten meals for people in need through their partnership with Feeding America!
Part of the reason I really love the story behind Turkey on The Table is because it’s the brainchild of two moms, who had a vision and wanted to teach their children a sense of gratitude. Their goal was to turn thankfulness into an activity, focusing on the things they have and not the things they don’t (sorry, Santa Claus, Turkey’s one-upping you). This is a reminder that gratitude is actually a learned behavior, and the research shows it’s linked to happiness.
We got our hands on our first Turkey, and on a recent rainy day at home, we decided to give it a whirl.
First, we unboxed the turkey and its feathers, which we were going to use to write down all the things we are grateful for. Before we got started on our feathers, we read the book that came with it together, and Sloane loved the story.
Just a few of the things Sloane was thankful for—the world, family, candy and warm weather. Practicing her writing was an extra bonus.
Next, she placed all her feathers into the turkey. She was quite pleased with the finished turkey.
There’s only about four weeks until Thanksgiving, so order your Turkey kit today.
