This year we are going to carry our yearly stepping stones over into making a yearly Thanksgiving trivet to use on the table. We will pass it around to write down what we are especially thankful for in the year 2012. Next year we will make a new trivet to add to the table, and hopefully continue in years to follow so that as we eat our dinner we can remember what we have been thankful for over the years.
Another fun dinner activity we did one year at the table was to stencil iced sugar cookies with food coloring markers. And then eat them. It was a nice activity to enjoy with the kids and grandparents while we had tea and more dinner conversation.
