Gratitude is a family practice.
Use the prompts on the following page to practice being grateful as a family. It’s a great time to acknowledge the people and experiences we sometimes take for granted. You can use the Gratitude Challenge in a few ways.
OPTION #1: As a family, go through the chart all month long and randomly pick a box. (Note: Don’t feel like you have to do this challenge every single day. Choose a column or row, or go through the chart in whatever way makes the most sense for your family.) Read a prompt and ask each family member to think of a person or story that comes to mind and share it with everyone.
OPTION #2: If you can’t physically be together, type out the prompt in a group text or get together on a video call.
OPTION #3: If possible, send a thank you note, text, email, or handmade card to the people you think about to let them know you are thankful for them.
OPTION #4: Planning a Thanksgiving dinner? Go around the table and have each person pick a prompt and share about a person or story that comes to mind.
