This year, I’m really working with the girls to cultivate a grateful heart. At this point, modeling is one of the most important ways I can do this, but we also have fun doing some crafts, making snacks, and just sharing what we’re grateful for. Below you’ll find some of the activities we’ve done in the past – as well as some activities and crafts from other bloggers around the web!
