Thanksgiving Cards

I am repeating the Thanksgiving Card activity because I hope everyone will share the idea with all your family and friends. With so many terrible thing happening around us, we must stop and teach our children how to recognize the blessing all around them. This is so they don't get caught up in the negative events, but have gratitude for the wonderful things happening everyday. This is an activity that everyone can participate in.

First, everyone creates a Thanksgiving card. It can be as simple as a piece of lined paper or a fancy as a wedding invitation. Next, you will number from 1-14 leaving space to write a thought on each number. Then, on Thursday, November 12Th - November 26Th, you start to write something you are thankful for that day or anything you are thankful for. Finally, on Thanksgiving day you will share your Thanksgiving card with your loved ones. Everyone should have 14 entries. Below are the suggestions for sharing the Thanksgiving Cards:

1. Share the cards aloud before the Thanksgiving dinner.

2. Have a contest for the most creative Thanksgiving Card.

3. Give out prizes for the most meaningful Thanksgiving Cards.

4. Pick partners and share cards, then the partner picks the most memorable entry.

5. Share Thanksgiving Cards after dinner.

6. Put cards in a pile and read them aloud, while everyone tries to guess whose card it is.

7. Only have the children and young adults make or share cards.

8. Everyone share 1 or 2 entries.

9. Make Thanksgiving Cards a new family tradition.

10. Come up with original ideas to share cards.

Have family fun and a positive experience on Thanksgiving with Thanksgiving Cards. Let me know how it turns out. Debbie
