Activities Celebrate

Thanksgiving Activities Jar

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!

Gratitude and Thanksgiving Activities:

Gratitude Scavenger Hunt
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.
