Teaching Thankfulness: Fun Gratitude Activities for Kids to Make!

These fun activities help teach kids gratitude! 

  • Postcards of Thanks: Use postcards to send a sentiment of thanks to loved ones. Use cardstock and stencils to cut Thanksgiving imagery using construction paper and glue. Draw a line down the center of the card, leaving room for a message your kids can hand write. 
  • Jar of Gratitude: Have kids fill a jar with daily notes about each person in the family. Have them express why they are thankful for them and what they like about each one. When Thanksgiving arrives, have your kids share the jar and give notes to each family member.
