The harvest in the fall in North America is also a time for giving thanks. In Canada, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October at which it is tradition to gather with family and enjoy the benefits of the harvest. It is also a time to reflect on those things we are thankful for. For children, creating a thankful tree is a great way to reinforce things for which they are grateful.

Have your children write out things they are thankful for. Young children can have assistance writing or draw out their thoughts.

Sit the whole family down and share your thankful thoughts together.
