Here is a Thanksgiving tradition absolutely everyone could start this year. It requires just a few minutes of your time and the rewards will last decades. Our family started this tradition a few years ago and I already love it: The Thanksgiving Tablecloth Tradition.

Start the Thanksgiving Tablecloth Tradition
Purchase or create a tablecloth for your Thanksgiving table. Every year, everyone who is in attendance at your table writes on the tablecloth one thing they are thankful to God for from that year.
This is one craft project that fits any ability level! (Even mine.)
Supplies you need:
- New white Tablecloth. Decorate if you choose. I didn’t. You could also use a table runner.
- Sharpies or Fabric Markers. I went with Sharpies since they are cheapier and readily available in plenty of colors. I’ve washed the tablecloth and the colors didn’t fade or run, although there are a few stains that didn’t come out, and I didn’t try too hard to get them out for fear it might fade the words also. I figure the stains adds to the character. Use a different colored marker each year.
