Thanksgiving brings to mind a spirit of gratefulness. How do we impart this attitude of gratitude into our families? In reality it is a year round effort, but we can use the Thanksgiving holiday as a kick-off to practicing thankfulness every day. Here are a few ideas to help get us started:
*Create a thankful paper chain – using different colors of construction paper, scissors, markers and a stapler, have the kids (young and old) write or draw one thing they are thankful for on a piece of paper. (1” x 11”) Encourage them to come up with many different ideas. Loop and staple the strips together to form a chain. See how long you can get it to stretch and use it to decorate your dining room for Thanksgiving dinner.
*Plan a simple, family service event – working together serving others is a powerful way to teach gratefulness. For ideas, check out the Doing Good Together website.
*Play the “popcorn thanks” game – Go around the dinner table and focus on one person at a time. Have other people name the things they appreciate about this person. Make it a popcorn thanks in that people spontaneously “pop out” what they have to say. No limit on the amount of thanks one person can give.
Please join us at our next regular monthly meeting, now on the 2nd Wednesday of each month (11/14) at 2:00 pm at the the Mead High School library. All interested parties welcome!
