DIY Thanksgiving Project – A Gratitude Calendar

It’s so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of life.  (If you’re feeling stressed out, be sure to check out our tips on how to de-stress!) As an exercise to help us remember everything that we’re grateful for this holiday season, we decided to list everything that we’re thankful each day during the month of November.

This is a great craft if you have children and you want to teach them the art of gratitude. The best thing about this DIY Thanksgiving project is that it doesn’t take more than five minutes of your time each day to complete!

Necessary Supplies:

  • Calendar (we had a erasable calendar but a paper one would work just as well!)
  • Markers
  • Sticky notes

Step 1
Gather your supplies! The best spot to hang your Thanksgiving Gratitude Calendar would be in a traveled thoroughfare such as a hallway or entrance way. When you’re ready to hang your calendar, be sure to keep your supplies in an easy to access spot nearby!

Step 2
As each day passes, write out something that you’re grateful for on a sticky note and put it on your calendar.

Step 3
Admire everything that you’ve listed on your calendar. You’re off to a great start!
