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
- Write “We Are Thankful For” in the center of the butcher paper.
- Use cute washi tape to tape the poster to your fridge.
- 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?
