- Let creativity shine! Give each child 6 pre-cut pages to draw and write things they are thankful for. Examples might include special friends, family, a pet, things in nature, or exciting events.
- Make each book extra-special by decorating the cover with playful charm. Ideas shown above are a smiley theme (made with a variety of stickers & a Smiley Face accent), and a Thanksgiving theme (made with a Handprint accent, felt, and sticks). Write a title on front for the perfect finishing touch!
- Children glue, or with an adult’s help, staple the pages together to complete their books.
BONUS: Create Helping Hands coupon books children give to parents or grandparents. Each child writes tasks on coupon book pages. Family members redeem coupons for help watering the garden, making dinner, and so on.
