The United States is getting ready for another major holiday in the time of COVID-19 — Thanksgiving.
Our family doesn’t have anything spectacular planned. We have opted to stay home for Thanksgiving; much to the chagrin of some of our extended family. As Mr. Boots is working in and out of various hospitals, we just don’t want to risk sending the grandparents to the hospital, or worse.
Honestly, I encourage everyone to lay low at home this year because of the stories I’ve read from doctors and nurses lately. They’re burned out, they’re stressed out. We can all do them a huge solid by finding alternative ways to be together but apart this Thanksgiving.
Mr Boots and I will probably Face Time and Skype our families at some point to say hello. I’ve heard of some families who will do something similar during Thanksgiving dinner. A few of my friends are trying to plan activities to do with their friends and families that can be completed in their own homes. I thought my latest printable would be a great fit for that: a Thanksgiving Word Search.
This Thanksgiving word search is geared towards kids, but anyone can use it while they wait for the turkey to finish baking. It’s also a great activity for socially distancing families and friends to complete. Just send everyone the link to this page and ask them to print out their own copies. Complete it together while you’re Zooming, or Face Timing, or Google Meeting!
A thing about my printables:
This word search is 8.5×11 inches. If you’d like to use this for yourself, feel free to download it and print a few out. But please….
