Thanksgiving is almost here and I’ve found some lovely Thankful Crafts for Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is a wonderful occasion where all people can celebrate and be included. And what is Thanksgiving without a reinforcement of gratitude for all that we and our kids have and are?
Gratitude is closely tied to happiness. Research has shown that grateful people are more likely to be happy, positive, hopeful and full of energy. They also tend to be more spiritual, more forgiving, and more empathetic. And thankful people tend to be less depressed. So, what’s not to love about Gratitude?!
In our family, we thank God for everything we are grateful for every day at the end of the day.
And Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to reinforce this gratitude while having a ball!
Here are some other fab ideas:
- a printable dry erase board that asks kids to reflect and write down what they are thankful for
- a beautiful fabric scrap thankfulness garland or natural thankfulness tree
- great utensil holders
- a fun gratitude bowl that is easy for kids of all ages and encourages dialogue
- thank you cookies
