I like to try to celebrate and do activities as we approach Thanksgiving. It’s the perfect opportunity to teach our kids about gratitude. This year we wrote down several ideas for “gratitude activities” and put them in our Thanksgiving Activities Jar.
We’d like to do one activity each day, but we’re doing them as we have time. Life can be busy as kids get older and start doing activities!
Write a thank you note.
Call your grandparents and say hi.
Write a list of the things you love about someone and give it to them.
Say a prayer to thank God for all your blessings.
Make a Thankful Pumpkin
Make a thumbprint tree
Make Fall playdough
Write thank you cards
Make a Fall I Spy Bottle
Take a “Thankful for Nature” walk
Read a book about being thankful
Watch a Thanksgiving movie
I got several of my ideas here, and you can find several more ideas including books to read and movies to watch here.
