6 Simple Traditions To Start With Your Family This Fall

It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. It's like November 1st hits and our to-do list instantly quadruples!

However, Family traditions are a good way to bring you back to center. They give you the opportunity to put your to-do list down and be intentional with the time you have at home with your family.

Here are 6 simple traditions you can start with your family this fall.



Have everyone write down 1 thing they are thankful for each day leading up to Thanksgiving Day! On Thanksgiving you can pass around the board and let everyone read what they have been thankful for so far this month.

To make your own thankfulness board, all you need is a picture frame (at least an 11x14) and some fabric or pretty wrapping paper! Simply cut the fabric or wrapping paper to the size that fits your fame and place it in the frame! Now all you need are some dry erase markers and you're all set!

(This is super cute hanging on the bottom part of the fridge. Just hang the frame using a 3M command hook/strip.)

Let your kids send thank you notes to their teachers and other people in their lives they are thankful for. I know this sounds simple, but a handwritten thank you card can have a huge impact on someone's day!
