Thank You Cards and/or Bulletin Board

Materials:

  • Camera

Directions:

  1. Brainstorm with the kids all the people for whom they should be thankful.
  2. Encourage them to consider family, friends, people in the community, etc.
  3. Let kids make cards for people.
  4. If you are in a facility such as a school or child care center, consider making a “thank you” bulletin board. Kids can take pictures of the people in the facility and post the pictures on the board along with thank yous.
