Gratitude & Thanksgiving Jar Activity & Free Printable Prompts

gratitude & thanksgiving jar

Though it’s hard to be away from our extended family during the holidays, it definitely has pushed me to come up with some of our own little family traditions.  And now my two oldest, excitedly expect certain activities around the holidays. When I am running around exhausted and I look at my husband and say, “the things we do for our children,” he reminds me that one day when they get older they will appreciate all the little things we have done for them (fingers crossed).

One of the traditions we started four years ago was a gratitude activity that we all participate in (even the little ones) through out the month of November during our dinner time.  Really this activity can be enjoyed in the car, on the way to school, while waiting in line… Just put these cards on a binder clip and pop it in your purse and you’re set.  For us, dinner is the time that works best for us.  So at dinner we pull out a card from our Thanksgiving Gratitude Calendar or jar and then we each go around and fill in the blank.  I always love hearing what my 2 year old is going to say, he doesn’t totally get what’s going on but we have him participate.

Another fun thing you can do with your Gratitude & Thanksgiving Prompts is print them out for your Thanksgiving dinner guest and have each one take a turn answering the prompt during your big meal.

      So sorry. I was planning on sending them manually to those who activated their account. So you will get an email from me this evening if you activated your subscription (basically, it’s hitting activate subscription when the email was sent to you via feedburner.)

    Hi! I subscribed to your email and the confirmation link gave me links to different printables, not the Thanksgiving one. Can you please send me the link to the TG jar printables? They are so cute and just what I have been looking for! Thank you

    I signed up on your email subscription list, but received different printables than the gratitude prompt printable. Can’t seem to find them anywhere on the website. Is there anyway to get a copy of them?

    Thank you!
