Last year we made a Gratitude Jar (which led to this Conversation Jar). It was really fun spending time thinking about things that we were really thankful for, the only problem was that is there is no record of our thankfulness. This year I thought it would be fun to make gratitude journals.
Little M filled in her ghost with water colors.
I drew leaves and added water color to them.
The cover was really simple to put together. I used a glue stick (because that’s what I had) and glued the pieces on like so. Then I punched holes in the side of the covers and all of the pages. I used ribbon and yarn to tie the gratitude journals together.
Nothing too fancy but I think they turned out pretty cute! We will spend a little time talking about the things we are thankful for and A LOT of time celebrating those things. Once the month is over we should each have our own little journal full of everything that makes us happy and grateful!
This post is a part of the Thanksgiving lesson plan.
