I love fall which includes Thanksgiving. If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you know I believe in gratitude. Gratitude changes lives. Gratitude changes my life. Gratitude changes kids’ lives. This year our 30 Days in November will center on Thanksgiving ideas for you to use in your family, with your kids and in your own life.

I’m super-excited to say that 13 other bloggers will share their expertise over the month of November.  You’ll find Thanksgiving ideas for preschoolers, children, teens, as well as crafts, journaling, writing, literature and much more.

All you need is a paper towel tube, clear glass vase, candy corn and artificial flowers. Place the cardboard tube in the vase. Pour in your candy corn. I alternated between pumpkins and candy corn shapes. Add flowers. Voila! Your fall centerpiece with candy corn is done.

On November 1, I will share an activity I used with my kids to get them thinking “gratitude” every day of November. Hopefully, that began a life-long habit of thankfulness.  I will also be giving away a free printable to encourage gratitude in your family. Check back tomorrow or enter your email in the box above.
