Navigating Thanksgiving During COVID-19

As we have had to change and adapt to a new way of life in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be experiencing a very unique holiday season this year. We understand how difficult and frustrating this process has been for so many of us. That is why today, we are sharing some tips on how we can attempt to cope with these unfamiliar conditions. 

Provide Arts and Craft Projects For The Kids:

It is no secret that kids are becoming restless after months of quarantining. Staying home for Thanksgiving, or reducing the guest list of people visiting your home is bound to make them even more anxious. To ease these nerves, try tasking them with some fun activities. Arts and crafts are the perfect go to, and will give you more time to focus on cooking. 

Designate Some Time For Video Chatting:

We are sure that many of you have started video chatting more frequently with your loved ones that you are not able to see. While it’s not quite as great as the real thing, it can really give you the chance to bond and catch up with your family. Set aside some time on thanksgiving day to contact those who are not able to be with you in person. 

Try Something New:

Quarantine is the perfect time to get outside your culinary comfort zone and try something new. While we all love our staples, it is exciting to experiment and try new dishes. This will be something that the whole family can look forward to. 

Decorate The House:

Setting up some decorations around the house helps create excitement. It is especially fun for the kids, as it shows them that something fun is on the horizon. Decorations can be tailored to every color pallet, style or tone. Have some fun finding what decorations best suit you and your family.
