We found this activity from one our our favorite pediatricians, Dr. Christina at ALL Pediatrics of Alexandria, Lorton, and Lake Ridge, VA.

Autumn gratitude projectšŸ‚šŸ

I love this idea: my neighbors bought this large pumpkin and every day each family member writes down what they are thankful for. By the end of November there will be no empty space on the pumpkin, and on Thanksgiving they will read each expression of gratitude from start to finish.

We like that there is more than one reward.Ā  First, the family can take a trip to the pumpkin patch to pick their favorites. Then each day everyone adds to the pumpkin.Ā  And on the last day, you can enjoy reflecting on your gratitude!
