Thankful Poster

This thankful poster is a great way to bring gratitude into the Holidays! 

 

 

I have a 3 and a 1 year old and I really wanted to think of a way to get us all feeling grateful throughout Thanksgiving without putting a huge burden on myself. It turns out this Thankful poster was absolutely perfect! Both my kids loved drawing on it and thinking about what they were thankful for! I loved that it was super low maintenance, and something I could easily remember to do. 

 

I at first thought it would just be a Thanksgiving thing, but my kids loved it so much we are going to do a new one all throughout December for Christmas! It’s just such an easy way to bring in a spirit of gratitude. I love the Christmas season and all that comes with it, but sometimes it’s hard to make room for what Christmas is really about. I think this will be a great way for us to do that!

 

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

 

Brown butcher paper

Marker

Pens

Washi Tape

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

  1. Write “We Are Thankful For” in the center of the butcher paper.
  2. Use cute washi tape to tape the poster to your fridge.
  3. Explain to your kids what it says and that they will need to write or draw one thing they’re grateful for every night until it’s full!

 

What traditions did you have growing up to bring a little gratitude into the home?

  1. This is such a great idea…and age-appropriate too! I think it’s important to teach children how to be thankful from a young age. The concept of gratitude will mature as they grow older.

  2. A Thankful Poster is such a great idea. It’s great to teach children early about gratitude. This is something that I think would be great for any family.

  3. It’s so easy to make! I think it’s awesome that you’re sharing this idea! It’s really nice to make a poster and have the kids participate. I’m sure they’ll appreciate the things that they have more.

  4. What a beautiful and doable idea! I think we’ll make this a yearly tradition so everyone can show some gratitude for all we have. <3

  5. This is such a wonderful idea! It is so important to remember what we have and be thankful, especially during this time of the year when it is ways to get caught up in getting new “stuff”

  6. We never really had any special traditions. We didn’t even do that thing where everyone says what they are grateful for. I think I grew up in a family that just constantly sung the praises of life and our beliefs so the special thing about Thanksgiving was more people and more food.

  7. Super cute! I am going to send this to a friend of mine for her kids. I think this is a great idea and more families could benefit from a low maintenance effort like this. It helps remind everyone of the true spirit of the holidays in addition to day-to-day gratitude.

  8. I love this idea. It’s so easy for kids to get caught up in the getting of gifts that they forget about giving and gratitude. This is a lovely way to remind me what the season is all about.

  9. What a great way to remember all the things we’re thankful for. Also a good step to start teaching our children how to be grateful for all the blessings.
