You will want to teach your child – especially the little ones – about why we celebrate Thanksgiving. So, find some coloring pages of Thanksgiving family pictures and while they are coloring, talk to them about what might be going on in the picture.
Discuss with your child why the family in the picture might be giving thanks and what they might be giving thanks for. Then ask them what they are thankful for. Tell them what you are thankful for. Be sure and explain to them what being thankful means and why it is important to acknowledge the blessings in your life. It is also a good time to tell them how Thanksgiving got started and why we continue to celebrate it today.
