Teaching our kids to be thankful for what they have is one of me most important lessons we can demonstrate. This doesn’t mean telling them to be thankful, it means demonstrating gratitude as parents and having an open conversation with our children about what that means. These gratitude crafts and activities are a really great way to get the conversation going, and demonstrate thankfulness as a family.
