Hey y’all! Halloween is officially over so we can now start focusing on Christmas!
Oh wait. We still have to do Thanksgiving. My bad.
Don’t get me wrong, Thanksgiving is an okay holiday…but its not my favorite. Honestly, I just see the third Thursday in November as a hurdle to Christmas. But, I DO like how I can weave in little lessons here and there during the Thanksgiving season to help my kiddos (and myself) grasp the concept of thankfulness and having a grateful heart. Need some help in how you can teach your kiddos thankfulness this season? I gotchu, girl. Or should I say, Pinterest has you, girl.
Coffee Cups and Crayons has a great printable you can download to have your older kids (and you and your hubby!) fill out every day in November to help you remember that even the simplest of things can be appreciated! By day ten, you typically have to start really looking at the little things in your life that you can be grateful for!
Another site full of book recommendations about gratitude is Babies to Bookworms!
