Make a Family "Thankful Box"
As November begins and the holiday season kicks off in earnest, it can be easy for kids and families to get stuck in the “I wants,” without having much chance to pause and appreciate the many, many other kinds of bounty—many of them cost-free and priceless--that a family can celebrate with gratitude and warmth. That’s why we love this project, on which your third grader can take a lead. And while he's at it, your child will be getting valuable practice in descriptive writing, which also happens to be a key third grade skill
What You Need:
- Empty cardboard box (we especially like round oatmeal boxes, but a shoebox can work well, too!), or large coffee can.
