Countdown to Thanksgiving

I love to countdown the days to major family holidays! We make a simple paper chain and write down things we are thankful and grateful for to hang up on the mantle.  

Each night we rip one down and read it before dinner.  The kids have fun reading others since they are all mixed up in the chain.  

I love this simple family activity because it gets us all thinking what we are thankful and grateful for and hearing what everyone thinks too.

With only a week until Thanksgiving I should have shared this sooner but it’s never too late to think up things you are thankful and grateful for!
