Hey Kids

Finding things to be thankful for is a great way to help you get through hard days

Remembering all the things we do have helps us when we get worried 

about what we don’t have. It can be really calming to stop and think 

about the positive things in our lives.

Try thinking about or saying 3 things every day that you are grateful for.

Some people write down what they are thankful for in a journal or draw a picture or think about it before they go to sleep. Whatever way you do it… try it and see how focusing on Gratitude can help you feel happier and more positive about your day.

Try thinking about things that you are thankful for. Here are some ideas to get you thinking:

The animal you are most thankful for…

The food you are most thankful for…

The memory you are most thankful for….

The videogame you are most thankful for…

The person you are most thankful for….
