There is no question that Thanksgiving is going to look different this year for individuals with ADHD and your families due to the Corona 19. In order to keep you and your family safe this year you will or may need to make some adjustments to your Thanksgiving Day plans. However, just because you might be alone or only with your immediate family members doesn’t mean the day can’t be festive. Below are a few of my ADHD Thanksgiving activities that could help you and your family celebrate the day while also keeping yourself, and others safe.
Watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade- While the parade’s structure has been modified (it will be TV-only, to limit crowds), the show’s still on! Get cozy on the couch and tune into this time-honored tradition.
Build a Thanksgiving Playlist– Pull together a playlist of everyone in your family and feel free to dance around your living room—I won’t judge (lol).
Queue Up a Thanksgiving Movie Marathon If you’re going all in on the TV-watching this year, conclude your evening with a classic Thanksgiving movie. There are plenty of options to choose from.
Video Chat Family Members While many of us are sick of Zoom meetings at this point, it’s hard to spend Thanksgiving without family. Make the call a little more special by adding in an activity, like turkey preparation or a Thanksgiving-themed quiz.
