Giving Thanks Intentionally.

About four years ago we started a November tradition of giving thanks intentionally. To make it more fun for the girls, I try to come up with a different way to display our thankful list.

The first year we made a turkey “stuffed” with blessings. Year two was a thankful tree. Year three was a thanksgiving basket.

This year I was stumped, that is, until I clicked over to a blog I hadn’t read in a long time: A Little Grace and Mercy.

Apparently, her family has the same tradition of giving thanks. So, this is our Gratitude Web. The photos are mine, the idea is all A Little Grace and Mercy.

We will be adding to the thankful web throughout November. It’s a month of gratitude…intentionally.

>>> Scientific research shows that giving thanks for just 3 things a day makes you 25% happier. A month long giving thanks fest brought to you by the Joy Dare. What are you thankful for? Write it down…and get happier.

thanksgiving arts/craft idea to show your blessings

While Alex was home sick with the flu I put together this coloring sheet for the girls. I found clip art of a fat turkey online, then in Photoshop I added the “stuffed with blessings” text. Everyone (including hubby) wrote all their blessings inside the turkey..stuffing it. (get it.) We then hung them on our art wall in the dining room. This little project kept the girls entertained for an hour…okay, it kept me and Alex entertained. It just proves that you are never too old to stop and color a picture! And it reminded us that we are more blessed than we think.
