THANKSGIVING ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS

Thanksgiving is often overlooked as it squeezes in between candy-filled Halloween and the presents of Christmastime.

A few years ago I became more intentional in the way I approached November, pointing out to my children that it’s a month of practicing gratitude, a skill which can benefit you for a lifetime.

Here are some of my favorite ways to get the kids involved in acknowledging and celebrating the spirit of Thanksgiving all month long.
