Thankful Jar

I love Thanksgiving. Besides the fact that the dinner is delicious (so delicious)– I love that there is a holiday that gives me the opportunity to teach the importance of thankfulness to the little ones in my life. Let’s face it… there is quite a lot of entitlement going around these days– so it is great to remember to keep thankfulness at the forefront. This year, Sprinkles and I came up with this simple project to help your family count their blessings. We are going to give it a try as well.

Here’s what you’ll need:

– 1 Jar

– Crafting Autumn Leafs

– Letter Stickers

– 1 Fine Point Sharpie


Here’s what to do:

1.) Using your letter stickers, title your Thankful Jar. I wrote “Thanks” on mine.


2.) Each day leading up to Thanksgiving, have your child write one thing that they are thankful for on an autumn leaf. Maybe some good times to do this would be when you sit down to dinner or when you are ticking them into bed. #focusfox


3.) On Thanksgiving pass your jar around the dinner table and read your leafs aloud. Your kids (and your whole family) will love going through and remembering all that they are thankful for.


That’s it! Simple.

I hope that you are all having a cozy and blessed fall.
