Taking time to reflect on all the reasons we have to be grateful is something everyone should do. The holiday season is a wonderful time to communicate how thankful we are. This writing activity will introduce your child to ideas for personal essays, important thoughts, and help him embrace a positive attitude throughout the month of December. Each day he'll write something he's grateful for. Then, he'll stash his thoughts in a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer jar. By the time Christmas comes, he'll have collected 25 things that he's thankful for and he'll be able to share his writing with loved ones.
