One of my favorite quotes to share is, “Gratitude changes everything.” It can shift your perspective in an instant. There is no better season to start a daily practice of gratitude than the month of November! Recently I did two very simple activities with my two small children as a way to show them the importance and benefits of practicing gratitude. I hope you enjoy and get inspired!

We took advantage of a slow weekend and visited a farm for their last fall fun event. At the farm there was a truck selling the most delicious lemonade and all the drinks were served in a nice quality mason jar. I repurposed it and made it our designated Gratitude Jar! Cutting a few slips of paper & having a handy crayon made this activity quick & meaningful. Since my son is learning how to write, it allowed for us to have more dialogue about the things he is especially thankful for right now. I look forward to each daily submission.

I don’t know about you but it’s been almost a week after Halloween and we STILL have a bit of candy. What better way to share this candy than with those who are protecting us afar? I explained what our troops do for us and how even something as simple as a card with handpicked stickers would mean so much to them. Showing gratitude to others is something I want to display for my kiddos every day and in turn see them doing as well.

I would love to hear how you practice being grateful with your kiddos. Please share below!
