This is the time of year we all start thinking about being thankful – or at least being intentional about expressing our gratitudes and thanksgivings. I have noticed a rising trend in the young people today – they are selfish and ungrateful. They are unappreciative of what they have and demand more, More, MORE!!! I noticed this in our oldest child and over the past several months I’ve noticed my 3 and 4 year olds following in those same steps.

Do you want your kids to be more thankful and appreciate what they have, rather than wanting more? These "What I am thankful for..." printables can help! :: www.inallyoudo.net

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not blaming them – at least not completely. In fact, I know it’s my fault. While I try to instill manners in them, I’ve not taught the true meaning of the words “Thank You.” That led me to find several different projects and activities for Mister Bull to add into his daily school work.

First, I created these Write & Draw papers for your younger children to draw something they are thankful for. Then, they can relay the description of the drawing to you as you write what they are thankful for. I know it’s not in their own handwriting, but the point is they are thinking about what is important to them. It also opens up a line of communication and teachable moments with their tender hearts. Enjoy listening to their hearts and encourage them in their efforts to express thankfulness.

I have created 4 different colored sheets to coordinate with our fall season. Each page has a box designated for their drawing with 5 lines underneath for you to write or help them write what they are thankful for this season. (Get these at the bottom of the post.)

We have also been using “My Book of Thanks” by Heather at Upside Down Homeschooling. She has both PreK-2nd grade and 3rd – 5th grade options. As a family we try to use these 28 Days of Thanksgiving Bible Verses & Prayer Cards every night. We’ve missed a few, but try to catch up when we can. It has been fun and heartwarming to listen to the kids’ responses to the questions on the cards and what they want to pray for that night.

We are also starting the “Be Thankful” family study by Amanda at Kids in the Word with Mister Bull to help him go deeper in his thankfulness, rather than superficial as young toddlers often are.
