4 Ways to Create Meaningful Moments this Holiday Season

A Special Guest Post from my friend and author Katie Trent. With the approaching holidays comes opportunities for special family time. Whether you’re a mom or grandma, I know you want to cultivate meaningful moments with your loved ones. So today, I want to share a few quick activities that can feed your family’s faith while creating memories that last.

Thanksgiving Activities:

  1. Make a holiday treat to share with neighbors, friends, church members, or other people in your life. Some of my fondest childhood memories are baking with my mom and grandma. Baking brings people together in a special way. It’s also a great way to bless others. Here’s a delicious pumpkin cake recipe that is sure to be a holiday favorite! You can make it as a sheet cake, cupcakes, mini loaves, or even mini bundt cakes to share.
  2. Play games. Nothing beats laughing and competing as a family! One of my favorite holiday games is the Saranwrap ball game. Have you heard of it? It’s fun for all ages! I put a special twist on it to help you grow grateful hearts and celebrate all Jesus has done for you and your family. You can learn more about the game, cultivating gratitude, and a recipe for baking delicious goodies by downloading the FREE bonus devotion from my new book, Dishing Up Devotions. Grab it HERE.
  3. Craft together. A simple craft idea is to create fabric pumpkins using a roll of toilet paper. It’s easy for any age and requires no fancy crafting skills! Here are step-by-step instructions.
  4. Create cards to express gratitude for people in your life. Add a bookmark for a fun, inexpensive gift that provides a constant reminder your loved one is cherished.

No matter your plans this holiday season, I encourage you to slow down. Enjoy the unhurried moments. Focus on activities that strengthen your relationship with Jesus and one another. Pray together. Play together! If you do, you’re sure to have a treasure trove of meaningful moments to reflect back on for years to come.
