Start Photo Journaling

Armed with a digital camera, smartphone or even a disposable camera, your child can start documenting the things they're thankful for all year round. Hand over a camera and a calendar and have your child start snapping at least one photo per day. Whether it's a shot of the family dog, a picture of his favorite after-school snack or a family shot, you can print them off for Thanksgiving and go over each picture. It's an interactive way to help your child remember to be thankful for the daily stuff all month long.
