Starting Traditions with Your Preschool Child

Posted on 10-23-2017

One of the most loved aspects of the holidays are the family traditions that we look forward to every year. Every family is different, and with your preschooler, you can start your own traditions this year. Before you know it, you’ll be doing these fun family activities every Thanksgiving.

Food

You can’t have Thanksgiving without some delicious food! Find an old family recipe, or pick something brand new just for you and your kids to make together. Whatever you pick, just have fun in the kitchen together. A fun thing to do is take a picture of your baking experience, type up the recipe, and laminate the whole thing to use next year!

Movies

Watching a holiday movie every year is one of the best traditions to start because it brings the family together and creates opportunities for memories that will last a lifetime. Something family friendly and timeless is the best pick, and you can plan ahead and check local areas for fun showings, like drive-in showings or a movie presentation in town square.

Decorations

From turkey hands to fall wreaths and Christmas lights, making decorations for the house every year is a win/win, because you get pretty new decorations and fun memories to go along with them. The longer your tradition continues, the more decorations you have to adorn your house with and reminisce.

Giving Back

The holidays are a time where people like to go the extra mile and give back to those in need, and what better tradition to start than one of volunteering and helping others? If you found a way to start volunteering every year as a family, you might find a community that you really connect with and find yourselves volunteering all year long!

Whether you’re going out or staying in, whatever you end up doing together as a family every year becomes the best tradition of all, so remember to have fun with your children, and the memories will last them a lifetime.
