  1. First, write questions about gratitude on pieces of paper (you can download our feather template) and place them in a jar. During your Thanksgiving meal, pass the jar and have each person draw a card and answer the question.

Here are some questions to get you started:

  • What are you most grateful for?
  • What invention are you most thankful for?
  • What do you often forget to be thankful for?
  • Which season do you appreciate the most?
  • Is there someone at the table you have a reason to thank? Who is it and why?
  • Besides saying "thank you," how do you show your thanks?
  • What was the nicest thing someone else ever did for you?
  • What are you grateful for every day?
