Are you looking for a fun and simple Thanksgiving craft for your family? At the beginning of November, I always like to do something to help my family think of all the things we are thankful for. Gratitude is an important quality to help kids develop! (See also my Gratitude Game and my Gratitude Journal!)
Last year we had a thankful wall. I used a big sheet of butcher paper and as we thought of things we wrote on it what we were thankful for throughout the month.
This year we did a family “Thankful Jar”. We decorated it in fall colors with cut-out leaves. Then we cut a whole bunch of leaf-shaped pieces of paper to write out things on. Each morning, as we eat breakfast together, we all write one thing for which we are thankful. Sometimes they really make me smile (care bear pajamas). I like to read it all with them at Thanksgiving, or sometime at the end of the month.
Take some time to think of what you are most thankful for. It is always a wonderful reminder to know how much the Lord has blessed you.
