Gratitude

Probably the best way to help preschoolers learn about gratitude is to model it for them.  Here are a few ideas of things to do to get you both in touch with the blessings of everyday life:

  • Before bed, tell each other one or two things you are happy about that happened that day
  • Make a list of the important people in your life and send a note to one of them to thank them for the happiness they bring to your life. Let your child dictate his note and draw a picture.
  • When someone is kind to you or your child, talk about it and think of a way to “pay it forward”
