Gratitude Cards

Thanksgiving and Christmas are the perfect holidays to teach gratitude and service to your family. One way in which you can do this is to write down things that you are grateful for every day and share them with your family. Even young children can do this. Just A Mom shares her Gratitude Jar and some great games that you can also play to teach young children about this concept. 


I love the idea of finding one thing a day to be grateful for but I started thinking about ways in which I can SHOW my son gratitude. I thought it would be fun to make a set of gratitude cards with questions, crafts, activities and acts of service that we can do together to learn about gratitude and to help others in our community. In total I came up with forty-eight things that we can do as a family. 




I typed them up, cut them out, laminated them and attached them with a ring and ribbon. Here is the final product:




The cards are very versatile and there are plenty of ideas that you can use with toddlers through to adults. You can use them as an activity a day countdown calendar for Thanksgiving or Christmas, in a gratitude jar or as I have by laminating and binding them together to use on their own. They are perfect for use in families and schools and suitable for toddlers to adults. Gratitude Cards are now available as a pdf download in my Etsy Shop.
