Thankful for YOU! - Warm, Fuzzy Paper Bags

What better way to show your appreciation for friends or loved-ones than by highlighting their best qualities! After this activity, everyone will be glowing as brightly as the candles in the centerpiece! Anyone can take part; Adults can aid smaller children in writing their selections. Here's what you'll need:

  • Markers
  • Tape
  • Paper Bags
  • Slips of paper and pens
  1. Set up a station with markers and paper bags.
  2. Keep kids busy by asking them to decorate a bag for themselves or each person at your Thanksgiving gathering and add a name to each.
  3. When finished, tape the bags to a wall or door and provide slips of paper and pens nearby. Ask children and guests to take a moment during the day to write something kind about each of the other people and place the slips of paper in the appropriate bags. Send bags home with each person or later in the day, read one kind attribute about each person present.
