10 Things to Be Thankful for

  1. Helpers: Give family members jobs to do during the Holidays (including your children)j. If friends, neighbors, and co-workers offer help, accept it. Asking for help is a powerful thing to do; ask for help if you need it.
  2. Laughter: Make time for playing games or watching funny movies or TV shows with your child.
  3. Gift-giving: Make some handmade Holiday gifts with your child or go shopping together.
  4. Good Food: Cook with your child.
  5. Me-time: Set aside some time for yourself (even if it is only 15 minutes). Sit quietly, exercise, read, watch TV, or listen or dance to music. Do whatever feels good.
  6. Child-time: Spend some uninterrupted time with your child.
  7. Nature: Take a nature walk with your child. Bring a magnifying glass with you if you have one. Collect leaves, stones, and other treasures.
  8. Imaginations: Yours and your child’s. Make up something – a story, recipe, game, etc.
  9. Talents: Yours and your child’s. Do a family or neighborhood performance.
  10. Other Countries and Cultures: Go to the library with your child to look up how other countries and cultures celebrate Thanksgiving.
