How to help your kids have an attitude of gratitude can’t be covered in one post … or two. But I’ve put together lots of resources within my post called “How to Help Your Kids Have an Attitude of Gratitude.” And I have many more resources for you here.
I think gratitude is important year-round, but November is a perfect month to place an extra emphasis on gratitude. Maybe there are some gratitude activities you’d like to start for your family. Or maybe you’d like to do something different just for the month.
Here are some more family gratitude activities you could choose from. Just find the activity you feel drawn to, an activity you think would be fun and meaningful for your family.
“Gratitude Dance” This is just fun, and a gratitude dance is an activity that could work well if your family loves to move and dance together. It’s wonderful to do throughout the year. If you aren’t already doing it in November, this would be a great time to start!
This is a sweet geography lesson, too!
Light a Candle from Gratefulness.org is a beautiful online activity that encourages thoughtfulness and thankfulness.
Kristina Belnap at Parent Guide News has an article called “Attitude of Gratitude.” Her suggestions are to:
- Model Gratitude
- Expect your child to show gratitude.
- Go guilt-free.
- Commit random (but regular) acts of service and gratitude.
November is an ideal time to focus on making these suggestions a natural part of your life.
I have a post at Living Montessori Now called “Montessori-Inspired Gratitude Activities” with links to lots of resources.
I have a post here with lots of November family gratitude activities of all kinds.

Kids’ Thanksgiving Activities
And I keep adding family gratitude activities along with other Thanksgiving activities to my Kids’ Thanksgiving Activities Pinterest board. There are links to posts for a Thanksgiving tree (many different types of Thanksgiving tree), gratitude journal, gratitude bowl, gratitude jar, gratitude board, and gratitude garland. I love that Pinterest is so visual. Hopefully, you’ll find an activity that appeals to you.
Do you have a family gratitude activity during November or year-round?
