Over 20 Gratitude Activities to Do with the Kids for Thanksgiving (including Thankfulness Crafts, Printables, and Writing Projects) !


We try to focus on gratitude in our daily lives throughout the year, but life can get busy and hectic, and sometimes focusing on being thankful can be easily forgotten. We’re using Thanksgiving this year to slow down and remember all the things we are grateful for in our lives.

There are so many creative ways families can share their gratitude together. Here are over 20 of my favorites!
