Gratitude Activities for Kids

It’s November, which means our hearts and minds turn to how blessed we are and how thankful we are for what we have. We seem to notice our big blessings in life most of the time, but now is a great time to notice the small things we tend to overlook. We tried to make it a point of teaching our kids gratitude throughout the year but we like to emphasize it even more this time of year. These Gratitude Activities for Kids are a great way to help your kids and grandkids recognize and be grateful for what they have. It’s also a great way to talk about how to help others and become a blessing in someone else’s life.


Gratitude Activities for Kids

You still have plenty of time to implement one or more of these ideas in your family as we lead up to Thanksgiving. The best part is that you probably already have all the supplies for most of these creative projects. We’ve done something a little different every year and I’m looking forward to doing something like a grateful tree this year with my grandkids. I’m not sure what we’re doing yet but I will be sure to share it on instagram.
