6. Do a month of good deeds together.

Show your child that little acts of kindness go a long way. Give a few dollars to the needy, buy someone a cup of coffee, hold the door open for someone, load someone's groceries for them – all of these things set a great example of kindness and compassion that your children will benefit from.

7. Let your child be in charge of one dessert.

Whether they get to help mix and then frost the cupcakes or bake and decorate cookies, they'll enjoy having a hand in preparing the food.

8. Start an annual family Thanksgiving game.

Are you up for a board game tournament or perhaps a game of football? This could be a nice way to burn off those extra calories after dinner or to relax and bond after the hustle and bustle of the day.

9. Take an annual family photo.

This is one of those rare holidays when the whole family often joins together. Take this opportunity to snap a photo of your children with their extended family members – photos they are sure to cherish in years to come.

10. Pick a movie to be your Annual Thanksgiving Special.

At the end of the day, pop some popcorn and settle in under a cozy blanket to unwind and watch a favorite film together.
