So much of the frugal lifestyle is filled with cultivating a sense of appreciation for life’s simple pleasures. A nice side benefit of learning to be grateful for what you already have — you’ll save money!! Yay for saving money! It’s never too early to start encouraging your kids to express thankfulness and gratitude. Here are five inspiring, yet simple ways to foster gratitude in kids of all ages:
1. Make Gratitude a Verb — Kids can express their gratitude with an active twist by making a Gratitude Activity Jar – a favorite November tradition in our household!
2. Be a Good Role Model – Let your kids see you actively recording your own gratitude lists. Rhythm of the Home shows ideas on Sharing Gratitude.
3. Cultivate Gratitude Through Crafts — I love this Gratitude Tree project! See the full tutorial over at Nitty Gritty Pretty.
5. Start Cultivating Gratitude at an Early Age — I adore this idea from Allie at No Time for Flashcards to make hand-painted thank you cards - perfect for even the littlest crafters!! See the full tutorial at No Time for Flashcards.
