What do people do for you that you are thankful for?
e.g. they give the best hugs, they make you laugh or they make the best cheese sandwiches ever.
What can we see to be grateful for?
e.g. It might be the warm sunshine, the refreshing rain, wonderful neighbours.
There are so many things to be grateful for, we just don’t always stop to notice them.
Once a week or once a month open the box together and read everything your family was thankful for. You will be amazed how much there is.
