Family Gratitude for November

Here is a family gratitude idea for November:

Every day of November when the family sits down for dinner, pass around a post it note, small strip of paper, or cut out leaf shapes. Have each family member write down what they are thankful for at that moment. It could be one word, a phrase or a sentence. Create a tree with dried twigs or draw a tree on a poster board and attach the papers as the leaves. If you use paper strips you can attach the strips together to create a gratitude chain of garland. At the end of November, store it away and take it out next November and your family can read what they were thankful for the year before. It is a nice lead in to Thanksgiving.
