Except for their extra days off school, kids usually find Thanksgiving pretty uneventful. You really can’t blame them, given that it falls in between two of the biggest candy-fest holidays of the entire year. If, like me, you are looking for ways to teach your own kids to be more thankful, a Thanksgiving activity like the countdown calendars featured below may be beneficial. Choose a style that allows them to write whatever they are thankful for each day, or go with one that allows them to add or pick a prize each day. Either way, it’s a great way to build anticipation for the holiday while learning something valuable.
