It’s easy to focus on the turkey and mashed potatoes and other delicious foods, but the heart of Thanksgiving is gratitude. This Gratitude Chain is a printable Thanksgiving activity for families and friends to come together and see just how many things there are to be thankful for.
Gratitude activities are the ideal focus for the time in between pie and naps! Gather family and friends together to count your blessings and watch the gratitude chain get longer and longer. Printable Thanksgiving activities are ideal, since no one wants more work on a holiday.
How to Make a Thanksgiving Gratitude Chain
Print pages of thankful strips onto multicolored paper, and cut in advance to make an easy Thanksgiving Day craft. Each attendee can write their gratitude items onto the printed papers, and fasten the edges together through the previous link. You can use glue, but I recommend simply stapling the links to avoid fussing with dry time.
