Thank You Cards
Show you care by sending a thank you card. Choose to print, color, or send electronically.
Create a Kindness Challenge
Think of a way your household can show kindness to each other this week. How can you help each other or make the day better?
During the week, take pictures of things you're thankful for. Then combine them into a slideshow, collage, or other collection to revisit and add to.
Write inspiring notes on rocks and leave them for your friends, family, or community to find.
Decorate a gratitude jar. When you feel grateful, write or draw the reason on a paper and put it in the jar. Read the results each week.
Build a Tree of Thanks
Make a simple tree of thanks together, and bolster your family’s gratitude practice—maybe even start a new family tradition!
Ask an adult how you can help for 15 minutes. Or set a timer and find something to clean, wipe, or put away until the alarm sounds.
