ENGAGE YOUR KIDS ON THANKSGIVING With These Gratitude- Themed Games Thanksgiving is an excellent time to teach children about gratefulness. By planning some fun, gratitude-themed games, you can impart a valuable lesson and spend some quality family time together. Get your kids in the holiday spirit by adding a Thanksgiving twist to these classic games. Pictionary Want to bring out your kids’ creative sides? Pictionary is the perfect way to encourage artistic expression and grateful thinking. Try adding a rule where players have to draw something they’re grateful for. This will get your kids thinking beyond turkey and stuffing and give them an imaginative way to express their gratitude. Plus, who doesn’t love a good art contest? Guess Who? To play gratitude-themed Guess Who?, have each participant write down their name and something they’re thankful for on a slip of paper and put it in a bowl. Then, at the dinner table, have each person draw a random slip and read what it says without saying the name while everyone else tries to guess who wrote it. While Pictionary may get your kids talking about what they are thankful for, Guess Who? will tune them into what others around them are thankful for too. Pick-Up Sticks Like regular pick-up sticks, the goal is to remove a stick from a haphazard pile without disturbing the others. However, by using colored sticks that represent different kinds of thankfulness — such as places, people, or food — you can make players think outside the box. This will ensure you get a wide range of creative, thoughtful answers whenever the kids pick up a stick. These modified games are great for helping your kids realize how much they have to be thankful for. Use these to spend some fun, educational, quality time with your family this Thanksgiving.
WHY WE WALK No More Victims
For the last three years, Rinehardt Law Firm has been a proud sponsor of Walk Like MADD, an event held to raise both awareness and funds to end drunk driving and fight drugged driving. Walk Like MADD is Mothers Against Drunk Driving’s (MADD) signature fundraising event. As the website explains, “Walk Like MADD is your chance to do something about drunk and drugged driving in our community. This year, thousands of people in over 90 cities around the nation will participate in these 5K events to eliminate drunk driving.” The annual Central Ohio Walk Like MADD is held in September in Hilliard, Ohio, at Homestead Park. This year, Hillary and John Rinehardt walked with others in the community. They were honored to show up for MADD because they believe in MADD’s motto of “no more victims.” They’ve seen the tragic effects of drunk and drugged driving on our community, and they’ve heard the stories from friends, family members, and clients who are affected by the illegal and negligent act of driving while drunk or drugged. Almost everyone will be impacted in some way by drugged or drunk driving. According to the Walk Like MADD website: • On average, 2 out of 3 people will be impacted by drunk driving in their lifetime. • Every two minutes, someone is injured in a drunk driving crash. • Every day, 28 people are killed by drunk driving. With every step taken and each dollar raised, walkers are supporting MADD’s lifesaving mission to keep our families and communities safe with the ultimate goal of no more victims. EMPLOYEE SP
