If you are having a big Thanksgiving meal, they can make place mats and place cards. They can add little personal touches to encourage the recipient with words and artwork.
If they receive gifts, you can work with them on writing Thank You cards, too.
You can start a Thankfulness or Gratitude Journal, and each member of the family can have a page or section to list things they are thankful for.
Writing things down puts the information into your children’s minds in a different way, and it is a nice change of pace if they have been practicing handwriting skills.
Have a wonderful day!
