Thanksgiving is the time of the year when we get together with our friends and family, share stories, eat delicious food, and make magical memories. In this article, we’ve compiled 5 ways you can use your OKIOCAM to ensure that this year’s Thanksgiving is unforgettable!

The carving of the turkey

There’s one guest that never fails to receive an invitation to Thanksgiving — the turkey! The side dishes that this beautiful bird is eaten with varies across the US, but there’s no denying we all love a hearty helping of scrumptious turkey! The carving of the turkey is a big deal in most households. We all eagerly wait around the table as the (hopefully!) succulent gobbler is sliced. Why not whip out your OKIOCAM to capture the moment? Don’t forget to share it with your friends, too!


Lots of families all across the US will be playing this Thanksgiving classic this year! It’s a tried-and-true game that never fails to get everyone chuckling. There’s no doubt that some of us are horrifically bad at charades (I should know, I’m one of ‘em!), but it’s always guaranteed to be a good time. With people having such a whale of a time, when better than to hit record and capture the magic with your OKIOCAM?

Thanksgiving gratitude

2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year. Without question, we have a lot to be unthankful for. Still, Thanksgiving is when we need to focus on the positives! As you’re gathered around the table with your loved ones this year, capturing the moment you all share what you are thankful for is a great idea. Recording this brings out the sincerity in those sitting around the table. Everyone giving a truly heartfelt recital of what they are thankful for is what Thanksgiving is all about!

Arts and crafts

It’s understandable that the little ones can get a touch restless as you’re working hard in the kitchen preparing Thanksgiving lunch. Fortunately, there are tons of websites where you can find super cool, Thanksgiving-themed free arts and crafts projects for youngsters. Be sure to choose one that involves lots of cutting and gluing because it’s sure to keep the kids occupied for quite a while — giving you plenty of time in the kitchen! This tissue paper turkey craft is sure to be a hit. Make sure the kids use OKIOCAM Time-Lapse to make a time-lapse video of their project! They can even add music to the video to truly make it their own!

Can’t attend Thanksgiving this year?

The current global situation means that not all of us will be able to get together this year. For the friends and family who can’t be together this Thanksgiving, OKIOCAM provides the perfect solution. OKIOCAM works with all the most popular video conferencing applications (Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, and more!), so even if you can’t be face-to-face with your loved ones, nobody is going to be alone this year!
