I Am Thankful For…
This activity sheet has kids (and adults!) write down something for which they are grateful for each letter of the word ‘Thanksgiving.’ Even in the midst of a pandemic and the changes that has brought, there is still so much to be thankful for and this activity helps us all lean into gratitude a bit more this year.
