Thankful 4 Thursdays

I am trying to make Thanksgiving a meaningful holiday and not just the start of the Christmas season. One thing we have been doing is making each Thursday in the month of November our Thankful 4 day.

I used word to make a pattern of the number 4. I then used scrapbook paper to cut out a number for each of us for each Thursday in the month.


After dinner each Thursday we talk about what we are thankful for and write the four things on the back.


I just love Megan's list! She was really thinking about it and after she had her four things she had to add just one more. I plan to save these so we can pull them out next year and see how our list change. It should be interesting to see how Megan's list chages through the years.

  2. This is a nice idea. We have a "thankful box" that we use during the month of November. EAch day we each write what we're thankful for on a slip of paper and stick it in the box. At Thanksgiving, we read all the slips of paper and reflect on those things we're thankful for.
