Giving Thanks- Projects for the Season

What I love most about November is all the gratitude. I try find one thing to be thankful for every single day, but November is a great time to get the whole family involved. Here are a few easy crafts and projects that will get the whole family counting their blessings. 

Paper Plate Turkey

This is a great one for kids of all ages. Even the toddlers can get involved. A paper plate, construction paper, googly eyes and a pen is all you need. Have each family member write on the feathers what they are thankful for. These can make cute decorations for your thanksgiving meal!

Gratitude Pumpkin 

I love this idea. Mostly because most years we don't get to carving those pumpkins we got at the pumpkin patch and after Halloween they just sit there. Instead of letting them just be a stump on the ground use that pumpkin to have the family write down things they are thankful for. A sharpie marker and a pumpkin is all you need. This will be so cute when it is completely filled with all the different handwriting. Also could make another great centerpiece. Or even a fun thing for your guests to do at your Thanksgiving dinner.

Tissue Box Turkey

Cover a square tissue box with brown paper. Add a turkey and feathers and leave a little post it note pad so your family can add to the box all month. On Thanksgiving day, after you can read each one.

Grateful Paper Chain

Take strips of paper and have your family members write down what they are thankful for. You can do as many strips as there are days left until Thanksgiving. Then every night as you take down one chain you can read what your family is thankful for. I love this kinds of activities because my 6 year old is notorious for asking, "How many days until.....?"

Whatever you do make sure to spend the month giving thanks! There is always something to be thankful for.
