FREE Printable: Thanksgiving Activity Sheets" Teaching Gratitude This Thanksgiving"
It’s almost Thanksgiving, a holiday that focuses on being with those you love and grateful for the goodness in our lives. Although this year things have been so different for so many, but there are still plenty of things to be grateful for.
Both kids and grown-ups can benefit from gratitude in their lives. Gratitude calms the spirit and puts everything into perspective.
So how do we teach our kids to be grateful?
🦃 Lead by example. By saying thank you to them and other people when gifts are given or kind actions are bestowed, you show the little ones how to be thankful.
🦃 Take time every day to talk about the things your family is thankful for. Dinnertime is the perfect time to have this discussion, but pick a time that works for your family!
🦃 Kids find joy in the smallest things. When they bring that excitement to you, thank them for showing you. Encourage their joy in the “little things” and find your own joy with them!
🦃 Encourage them to say thank you to their siblings when they are kind to each other.
🦃 Create thank cards or art focusing on the people and things they are thankful for. To give you a head start, grab our free count your blessings printable.
