This month, with Thanksgiving on the horizon, we are feeling extra thankful. Thankful for our friends and family (all over the world), the roof over our heads, and the many blessings with which we find ourselves. Thanksgiving is always a time when families gather together, eat good food, and share the gratitude in their hearts. We usually go around the Thanksgiving table, with each person naming three things they are thankful for. This year I decided to take it a few steps further by creating an "I am Thankful For..." ABC printable. Our Thanksgiving ABC Printable is a great way to help kids think creatively about the things they are thankful for.
When my daughter saw what I was making, she couldn't resist. Immediately, she wanted to sit down and start filling out her Thanksgiving ABC Printable that night. We had a good back and forth discussion on all the things she was thankful for. She was very serious about filling it out truthfully. Things got pretty serious with some of the more difficult letters, like Q for example.

It's not just for kids either. You can make a lot of copies. I know the kids in her class will enjoy doing this activity and we plan on including it in some sweet "thankful for you" notes to neighbors and friends that we won't see on Thanksgiving day, but are thankful for non-the-less.
I think this could be a fun challenge for adults too. If you're having a big Thanksgiving gathering, print off these Thanksgiving ABC printables and have everyone fill one out. You'll probably be surprised at all the different answers you receive.
What are you thankful for this year? Do you think you could think of something for every letter in the alphabet? Go on, give it a try!
