Thankful Box

Thankful Box

This is Andrew’s version of this idea. We are going to put the box in a prominent place. Each day everyone one in the family can write what they are thankful for on a piece of paper and put it in the box and then I’ll have Andrew read each one aloud on Thanksgiving Day.

(I know our box isn’t nearly as nice as the one I linked to, but our version of the box was Andrew’s idea and craftsmanship. He’s happy with it and that’s what matters! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

      That’s a great idea, Barb! Maybe I will keep it up after November is over. It is certainly helping us to be mindful of the things we have to be grateful for!

  5. A great idea and a great looking box! Thanks Carol!

  6. That is such a good idea–and who cares if it’s not fancy? Fancy things have to be protected from use. This is a USEFUL idea. Love it.

      Thanks Kathleen. What you say is true. Our version is definitely useful and Andrew has been using it quite a bit! He thinks of something to put in the box several times a day – which is not only helping him to be thankful but also giving him lots of handwriting practice! LOL!
