  1. Write each other positive notes. Try making these “complimentary” placemats together to add a bit of positivity to meal time.
  2. Start a gratitude journal. A gratitude activity jar is even more fun!
  3. Create a morning and night routine. This agenda of awesomeness is a great place to start.
  4. Go for a family walk or bike ride. To make things more interesting, try an outdoor color match nature walk.

  6. Write thank you cards. You can even paint your own cards. Find instructions here.
