Thankful List: 5 Family Acts of Gratitude That Can Make a Difference

Share a bold, enthusiastic thank you with everyone who makes life better for your family. Here's how to get started:

  • Invite each family member to brainstorm a list of people they are thankful for. Pay particular attention to those easily overlooked people in your lives (the helpful cashier, bus driver or waste disposal team, etc.).
  • Make time each day to pull a name from your collection and choose a project from the list below.

Gratitude Projects

  1. Pay it forward: Celebrate gratitude by giving to the local food pantry or shelter.
  2. Bake and share: Double your next dessert recipe and give extras to someone on your list. Include a handwritten, heartfelt thank-you note and deliver the treats in person.
  3. Make a call: Call someone up simply to say thank you for being a friend, a good grandparent or a kind presence.
  4. Write an old-fashioned letter: Write a thoughtful, handwritten note. Add a gift card if appropriate.
  5. Get crafty: Make a seasonal craft project to share with someone on your list.
