Thanksgiving Gift of Gratitude- Possible Family Home Evening Idea

Thanksgiving

This month I wanted to do something special for my children.

Take a small gift and wrap it. Add an index card with a reason why you are grateful for them. Wrap another layer. Add another index car with another reason why you are grateful for that person. Repeat as many days as you want that person to unwrap!!

This could make for a fun Family Home Evening if you drew names of family members and did it in secret! On the last wrapping paper layer and index card you could reveal who was writing all the kind messages of gratitude!

I wrote the small poem in the middle. Please do not use this idea for comercial purposes.

Thanks for this nice article. Please feature giving artwork as gifts for any occasion, artworks like painting, sculpture, artists glass figurines (Russian hand blown and Murano), etc. I was able to find many of these in ebay, Glasslilies and in art galleries. Thank you!
