Tis the Season for An Attitude of Gratitude


Did you ever play the game Pick-up Sticks as a kid? (Also called jackstraws, or spillikins) This is a homemade version of Pick-up Sticks, with a twist. With this game, each time you pick up a stick you have to name something for which you are grateful. Each color represents a different type of thing. What a great way to get kids to realize all the things there are in our lives for which we can give thanks!


Here is another fun way to celebrate gratitude with your family. Either all-year-round OR just during the holidays have small strips of paper available for your family members to write down their blessings and place in a gratitude jar. You can design this jar together as a family as a craft project over Thanksgiving break. Then, on New Years, dump out all of the blessings and read as a family. What a way to start the New Year!

Delve into the History of Thanksgiving with these fun apps!
