Write down what you’re grateful for, capture acts of kindness you’ve performed for others, and place them all in a rustic-style Gratitude Jar. Will Brown’s version of the classic Thanksgiving craft is easy to assemble and doubles as a lovely fall decoration for any room in the house. River rocks and rope give this project a handmade feel, while colored craft paper makes your family’s thoughtful notes feel extra meaningful. Want to keep the thankfulness momentum going? Try a 30-day challenge, and watch your family’s mindset change toward showing appreciation and expressing gratitude. As the holiday draws to a close, gather together and review what you’ve written – you’ll be reminded it’s the simple things that make life worth living.
