Thankful Tree - A Thanksgiving Activity Booklet for Kids

FullSizeRender.jpg

I know it sounds cliche, but with the hustle and bustle of the holidays quickly approaching, it is SO easy to get wrapped up in the business of it all that we forget to even enjoy this time with our families and forget the reasons for the seasons.

And the true meaning of Thanksgiving is gratitude and spending quality time with family.

I am of the mindset that a little bit of gratitude can truly change everything. Whiney kids, grumpy sleep deprived moms, a negative attitude, stress, you name it. It only takes a few minutes to thank God for the top 10 things you’re grateful for to help shift your mindset from worrying about the things that don’t matter, to just being grateful for what you have.

It doesn’t have to be elaborate either. I think God is pleased when we thank him for the little blessings in life too.

I wish my kids would sleep at night
Changed Mindset: God, Thank you that my kids have a safe place to sleep at night
I want that new Toy for Christmas, Mom
Changed Mindset: God, I’m thankful for how many toys I already do have
Why are my kids always getting sick?
Changed Mindset: God, Thank you that I have access to healthy food and medical care

Get yourself and your kids into the spirit of Thanksgiving with this fun Thankful Tree Activity Booklet and Poem.

You can tape this big tree up on the back of the door or in an open wall space and have your kiddos practice their cutting skills while choosing what they want to give thanks for each day. You can have them cut them all out at once or just choose one a day to put on the Thankful Tree. This package comes with an extra page of gratitude leafs for your child to think of any extra things they’re thankful for.

The Activity Booklet also comes with this cute poem to read out loud with your kids thanking God for all of their blessings.
