Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.Oprah Winfrey
Who doesn’t need a little more gratitude in their life?!
We love to make a gratitude box! It is cheap and easy to make with your kiddos!
Now that your box is ready, set it somewhere that you cannot forget and add thankful notes to it daily. Your family can write all the things they are thankful for over the month of November, and then on Thanksgiving day, open the box together and share several of the things that you wrote down over the month of November.
Another great way to use this box is to create one for each of your guests as a keepsake. I did this 3 Thanksgivings ago. I made a box for each guest, and throughout our time together everyone who was invited stuck notes in their box thanking them for all they do and for who they are in our lives. Then each guest took their box home. Many of them told me how special it was for them to look through afterwards. They felt honored and loved. It was a great pick me up on those NO days.
Make your own Thankful boxes! They are a lot of fun and will bless your family or your guests!
