November Gratitude

Posted by Dori Nottingham

I saw this at PotteryBarn Kids and loved it instantly.  What a great way to get kids to think about what they are thankful for.  30 days and 30 pockets to express gratitude throughout the month.  I plan on saving all the cards (or condensing and making a list) for memory sake with date and age of gratiture.  It's amazing to find through the years what things you are thankful for at different times.  It says a lot about who and what we may be going through.  Even for little kids!

Who says a two year old can't be grateful? Yesterday when explaining what gratitude and thankfulness was to Zoom, I then asked him what he was thankful for. He instantly declared he was thankful for pumpkins! A boy after his mothers heart. I am surely thankful for pumpkins too!


This is a fantastic idea. Kids are not very grateful these days and spoiled rotten. We need to find ways to help them realize the things that they are blessed with...even pumpkins :) So cute.
