I know that this time of year kids start getting their Santa lists together and start thinking about the things they want, so I love that these Activities and Crafts that Teach Gratitude actually focus on being grateful for the things that we already have.

‘Tis the Season where children everywhere start writing down lists and lists of things that they are hoping to find under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning.  But I think it is very fitting that before the gift exchanges come, we have a holiday reminding us to be thankful for the things that we already have.  I love these activities and crafts that teach gratitude.
