Thanksgiving Family Sports
The average American consumes close to 5,000 calories on Thanksgiving day so get outside and sporty to offset the indulge while also having fun. Many will lace up sneakers for a turkey trot, or organize the neighbors for a block party pick up game of baseball, kickball or the super popular pickleball and DICK'S Sporting Goods is the best spot for all things sports! FOX is showing the NFL game, and during halftime you can play football with friends or bike to the beach or park.
Houses for the Holidays
Teaching kids to have a heart of gratitude can be a challenge, especially in Southern California, but it's so important for kids to understand what it means to serve and thanks to Lazy Dog's Restaurants' Houses for the Holidays, now the whole family can get involved in a heartwarming, and delicious project. Build a DIY Gingerbread House and also help build a physical house for someone in need through Habitat for Humanity. Kits are only $7.50 and 100% of proceeds go toward building homes in the community. Every gingerbread house purchased at a Lazy Dog Restaurant will help families in need of a decent place to live in communities across the U.S. The kit is complete with pre-cut edible gingerbread walls and roof pieces, icing to keep it all together, and a variety of candy for imaginative decorating.
Art Activities On-the-Go
Keeping little hands busy whether you're traveling to grandma's for the feast or just need kids to have crafts that provide independence from parents so you can attend to the cooking in the kitchen or socialize with guests, there are many ways for creativity through art activities.
One of our favorites is the new Wixels sets from Crayola. Inexpensive and reusable — two key words! — innovative way to do pixel art while teaching concentration and patience in a creative way. Once done can show off masterpieces and display in house too.
