You’ve heard it said, “You can’t choose your family, but you can choose your friends.” Most of our friends inevitably become part of our family. If family is far away, gather all your friends to celebrate “Friendsgiving”! If your friends have kids, invite them all as we have got the insights on some kid friendly Friendsgiving activities.
If this is your first Friendsgiving, get ready to make some new traditions! From place cards to side dishes you get to pick it all! When it comes to meal planning, combine the best everyone has to offer. Give everyone a “job” and delegate to their strengths. Have an artistic friends? Let them do the place cards. Divide out the decorations to the kids, after all, those hand turkeys aren’t going to make themselves.
Kid Friendly Activities, Food, and Drinks:
Kids can be picky when it comes to their food. While most kids like the typical mac and cheese meals, mix it up this holiday season with fruit cornucopia or turkey nuggets.
Board games are a classic way to make everyone feel comfortable and join in on the fun.
Set up a coloring table for the little kids. Adults like to color too so throw in some adult coloring pages so they can join in on the fun.
Duck Worth Wearing has a ton of travel kits or activity pads from Melissa and Doug that will serve your visiting little guests well! Stop in to check out our collection.
Adult Friendly Drinks:
We all know the holidays can be a bit stressful, wind down with one of these fall inspired cocktails.
