The gratitude jar is a fun and easy way to show kids the importance of thankfulness. A few weeks before Thanksgiving, each family member writes down something they are grateful for and puts it in the jar every day. The gratitude jar is a great way to start conversations about all the things we have to be thankful for. It helps kids to think beyond material possessions and appreciate the people and experiences that make life special and can also be a great reminder for adults!

What do you need?

Start by gathering some paper strips, pens, and a jar. Put the strips in the jar and enjoy sharing what everyone is grateful for on Thanksgiving Day.

How to do this?

End your dinner on a fun and sweet note – have the kids read aloud the slips while dessert is being served!
