It’s Thanksgiving Zoom time and we’re here to help you make sure it’s the most fun that it can possibly be! Use these five ideas to help your family have a more enjoyable virtual gathering in the name of gratitude!
1. Gratitude Collages For Virtual Backgrounds

Make a collage of the people and things that you’re most thankful for and use it as your virtual background. Do a family walkthrough of the objects of gratitude, sharing the stories of what and who they are, and why you’re grateful for them! You can make one digitally or you can use photos, construction paper, and markers to make one that you can hold on to. I made a digital one!
2. Centerpiece Competition
Make a festive Thanksgiving centerpiece and compete with your family! Come up with different categories like Most Creative or Fanciest. Show off your creations and designate the winners of each category! Here are some ideas to get you started.
3. Share Family Recipes
Now’s your chance to FINALLY get your hands on Aunt Debbie’s top secret recipe for green bean casserole! Share recipes with your family and make it fun with specific challenges!
Who can share the oldest recipe?
Who has the recipe with the weirdest combination of ingredients?
Who has the best side dish recipe that the kids love?
4. Make A Slideshow Of Embarrassing Old Photos

Collaborate with the fam to collect old photos and turn them into a slideshow. Use the screen-sharing feature to take a fun-filled stroll down “It Was Trendy At The Time” Lane and share the stories behind these now iconic moments.
5. Play A Game
The whole family can play a game together! Games like “Apples to Apples,” “Trivial Pursuit,” and “Codenames” are super easy to adapt to Zoom. Another good option is the Jackbox games, which are designed so that everyone can play along using their phones no matter where they are.
Share what you’re grateful for with us @CAMPSTORES on Instagram! Happy Thanksgiving!
