Get in the spirit of Thanksgiving with these fun and insightful activities. Move a step beyond gratitude and show acts of appreciation and kindness towards the people in your life who make a difference all year long.
For both formats, choose an act of appreciation for each day of the month. Cross them out as you do each one. On Thanksgiving, share about what each kind act meant to you.
Format 1: Cut the larger size Gratitude Cards and place them in a container. Each day, choose a random card from the container and follow its instructions. Take a piece of posterboard and glue together a collage of completed Gratitude Cards to share on Thanksgiving Day.
Format 2: This is a calendar format. Print the “Giving Back the Gratitude” calendar and write the dates of the month of November in the top left corner. Display the calendar. Each day, follow the instructions on the date.
A variation might be to play Tic-Tac-Toe with the calendar and cross off the squares as they are completed in random order.
Either way, use the calendar to reflect on the blessings in your life on Thanksgiving Day.
