“Gratitude is a divine emotion: it fills the heart, but not to bursting; 
it warms it, but not to fever.” – Charlotte Brontë

3. Make a gratitude jar. Show your appreciation this season with easy DIYs every age can enjoy, like a DIY gratitude jar. All you really need is a large empty jug or vase, white paper cuts into strips, and pens enough for everyone at your table to start a special tradition of offering thanks every year. 

Michaels.com is a great retailer to get cash back on big jugs, fancy markers, and colorful paper if you’d like to get a little more festive for this activity!

4. Create a gratitude wreath. Another easy DIY for all ages to take part in creation: a gratitude wreath! Clothespins, colorful sharpies, and a wire circle make this timeless piece come to life. Since there will be more clothespins than people around the table, guests can write on more than one pin – or save the empty ones for the upcoming years with new people and new gratitudes to come.  

HobbyLobby.com will have all the cash back and art supplies suggested for this one.
