five tips for teaching kids about gratitude
Teaching children to be thankful and have gratitude is a fantastic idea and one you can incorporate into your Thanksgiving celebrations.
You may want to have a special mat time to talk about the things we are blessed with and the things we are grateful for.
Teach children to give and to share. When we have plenty or more than we need it is good to share with those less fortunate than ourselves. Maybe collect cans of food for the poor or come up with ideas on ways to help those in need.
Use this season as an opportunity to promote kindness and love towards one another. Kindness comes hand in hand with thanksgiving and you could try some activities based on the theme of kindness.
Create a game where you have to think of different things you are grateful for. Start with the alphabet letter A and come up with one idea for each letter.
