Thanksgiving really gets the short end of the stick, don’t you think? It’s sandwiched in there between Halloween and Christmas; and all that Black Friday nonsense encroaches further into Thanksgiving each and every year. I won’t get up on my Black Friday soapbox, but I think Thanksgiving needs a little love.
I made a set of little printables so we can help give Thanksgiving its proper attention. Print out the little wall sign and hang it anywhere. It would make a cute surprise on the bathroom mirror for your special someone. Or shrink it down for a little lunchbox note.
Every year, I mean to have the kids write down things they’re thankful for while we’re prepping Thanksgiving dinner. But that’s a terrible idea. Things get pretty crazy in the kitchen, and the kids are always running amok while the grownups get dinner ready. And the thankful lists always go unwritten. So this year, I had them do it early. Of course Minecraft is in there. I’d be worried if it didn’t make the list.
An even better idea is to print out a whole bunch of these thankful cards so everyone can write down something they’re thankful for every day. It’s really nice to reflect each day on something that is important to you. You could even make a little book of these so your kids could read them years from now.
