Gratitude is something we often talk about in our home. I believe we set our children up for success when we teach them how to focus their attention on what they have, rather than what they lack. Some of these gratitude ideas will definitely become a family tradition for us during the holiday season, especially the thankful jar. I’m so looking forward to doing some of these crafts with my kids during the upcoming weeks!
