So this year we are celebrating Thanksgiving at the Compton Family Reunion.  My mom’s family started a tradition nearly 20 years ago of intentionally getting together every 2 years.

This year I wanted to have a kid and teen friendly Thanksgiving project since there will be over 15 kids together.  I am getting several pumpkins (super cheap since it’s after Halloween)  2 cans of spray paint and permanent markers. We will paint the pumpkins and then everyone can write what they are thankful for on them and we will use them for our table decorations.

There are so many creative ways to say thanks–  What project or ways do you give thanks with your children?  #MomSays
