Attitude of gratitude for your holiday break!
Here is a fun and super-easy family project to bring out the mindfulness of your gratitude. It’s a great way to introduce the idea of thankfulness to kids and create a physical form that they can both relate to and have fun adding to all the holiday season.
Try this 3-Step Gratitude Branch:
Step 1: Enjoy a nature outing with the family and bring home a fallen branch.
Step 2: Display it where the whole family can see it often.
Step 3: Each day, as a family, write or draw about something you’re grateful for and hang it on the branch.
More ideas for your gratitude branch:
• Display in a jar, vase, or cup – feel free to decorate the holder! Place rocks, sand, or any small items to anchor the branch.
• Alternatively, hang the branch on a wall, or suspend from a ceiling or chandelier!
• Add personal photos of treasured moments or people.
