Thanksgiving Gratitude Activities for Kids

We’re big on having gratitude journals and a gratitude tree in our house so it just makes sense for the kids to add to the fun gratitude activities! What I love about these thankfulness games is that it lets the kids complete them based on how and what they’re thinking personally.

Teaching kids about gratitude doesn’t have to be boring or hard and this gratitude game printable shows just that!

Benefits of Fun Gratitude Games

If you’re wondering how to teach kids to be grateful, mixing it with family fun activities is the best! Not only will they be excited to join in on the fun but they’ll love having their own printable that they can complete and build confidence while doing so!

Dare I say that they’ll be “grateful” for sitting down and taking the time to write and draw out what they love about their lives?!

Creative Ways to Use These Printables

Make a gratitude scavenger hunt

Once the kids list out everything that they’re thankful for, see if you can turn it into a scavenger hunt around the house. Have the kids run around and find the items that were listed on the free printable.

Create their very own gratitude journal

Once this gets their minds working, they’re going to want to talk about what they’re grateful for daily. A journal can be a positive space that gives them the chance to write out their feelings and thoughts.

Write a gratitude letter to a family member

The easiest way to show gratitude is to spread that knowledge to someone else in the family. A quick hand-written note is a perfect way to share the love!

Equipment Needed / Helpful Tools

  • Printer: This one is a great budget printer. If you’re willing to spend just a little more though, this is a better option. And if you’re looking for an all-in-one home office machine, this one does it all, has high reviews and includes 2 years of ink.
  • Printer paper or cardstock: If you’re printing for one-time, quick use, print on regular printer paper. If you need the printout to hold up to being handled often or if you plan to laminate it to use it multiple times, choose cardstock.
  • Laminator: Laminating your printable is an inexpensive way to use it multiple times. Just use dry erase markers and wipe off when you’re done so you can use it again!  Alternately, you can cover the printable with clear contact paper to achieve the same thing.
