Gratitude Leaves

A simple thing we are going to do this year starting November 1st through Thanksgiving are gratitude leaves.  Every day each child will pick a leaf and name something they are grateful for.  They can help me write it down or draw a picture.  Then we are going to put it up around the house so by Thanksgiving we will have a very colorful and grateful (hopefully) house.  :)


Here are the leaves we will be using

We share what we were thankful for every night before bedtime. But I like your idea as an additional visual way to foster gratitude in our home.

This is a wonderful idea. We are doing this in our home this month. Thank you for sharing.
