How to make a Thankful List with your kids - 30 Days of Thanksgiving Activities for Kids

I am so excited this year to be doing our 30 Days of Thanks! But I am doing it a little differently – focusing on the KIDS. Starting today, I will post one of our fun Thanksgiving activities for kids to complete. I will post for the next 30 days (month of November). So, be sure to come back and look at what’s new everyday.

Family Thank You List

Several years ago, the kids & I kept a list of thanks on our refrigerator. Every time I opened the frig, I was reminded of something to which I could be thankful.

This is an awesome project for the month of November and you will see the power of gratitude as you do this as a family. It will help you and your kids focus on the good things in your lives, instead of the problems. It will also help you focus on what God is doing for you.

Family Prayer List

Whenever you or your kids think of something else to be thankful, go add it to your refrigerator list of thanks. By the end of November, you’ll have a great list.

One of my favorite ways to use your refrigerator list of thanks is as a prayer list . . . prayer list of thanksgiving. Keep it nearby so you have something to thank God every time you pray as a family.

Every time we thought of something we were thankful for, we wrote it on the list.  Back then, it was just a piece of typing paper. But I have your back. You can get my ‘Things to Be Thankful For’ printable by entering your name & email below. Just check your inbox for the downloads.

  1. My first Thank You list item will actually be 2 items.

    The first is 47 years and 4 months of Marriage from the day of my Betrothal to my Beloved. I love him now more now than the day HASHEM brought him to me.

    The second is the 3 children the GOD had given us. HE took 5 home to be with HIM before they were born but I have grown to know that HE knows what was best for me and them.

    1. That is awesome, Jackie! Congrats on a long marriage and 3 beautiful children who walk on this earth …and the others who Jesus has in His hands

  2. didn’t find anywhere to put in my email addy, besides here to get the “thankful list.”
    But I want to share my Thanks for providing free stuff to share with the rest of us. It’s a big help to those of us who have such an incredible tight budget that makes it difficult to buy curriculm’s.
    I’m also very thankful for the Lord helping me get through 24 rocky years of marriage & so very thankful for being blessed with 4 wonderful kids.
    Life has been rocky………but I’m thankful to be given the strength to go through my life 🙂

    1. Alli,
      Thank you for sharing honestly. When I was upset this morning, I sat down and wrote 15 things to be thankful for. It completely changed my mindset. I’m sorry you are not seeing the sign up form. Some ad blockers block it. I will have it sent to you.

      1. Thank you Kerry….it’s probably my computer its been messed up ever since I refused to upgrade to windows 10, sometimes website show up well, others not so much.
        Remembering things your thankful for, does indeed change your mindset. I’ve never written them down (probably should start)as my mind tends to wonder onto other things, but it does help. It’s gotten me through some rough times…as well as seeing others who have more serious issues (like poor health) then mine :o)

        1. You’re not the only one that has not seen a sign up. It has something to do with firefox and ad-blockers. Sometimes they show. Sometimes they don’t. You should have received the pdf by now. Hope the list printable is helpful in preparing for Thanksgiving.
