20+ Gratitude Activities for Kids

With Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon I thought it might be nice to share some gratitude activities for kids. I know that I try and remind my kids how much they have to be thankful for (and remind myself too!) but sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in things and forget, plus anything that encourages gratitude has got to be a good thing, right?! Some of these gratitude activities for kids are specific for Thanksgiving with turkey crafts and pumpkin pies while other thankfulness activities are ones that you could use all year round. If you are getting ready for Thanksgiving then make sure you also check out our Thanksgiving crafts for kids at the end of this post!

I’ve split this list up into a list of gratitude activities for kids that I think are probably more suitable for Thanksgiving (no one wants a turkey craft in July, right?) and gratitude activities for kids that you could use any time of the year. Of course if you’re looking for gratitude activities for Thanksgiving then you can use any of the ones I’m listing! You’ll find the Thanksgiving themed list first under this image and the year round gratitude activities further down. For both of them I’ve listed the activities in the order you see them in the picture to make life a bit easier for you but there’s more ideas than pictures so make sure you check them all out. Want to make sure you don’t forget all these ideas? Make sure that you bookmark this page or pin the images so that you have all these gratitude activities for kids to hand when you need them.
