Sharing a Tremendous Gift with Our Kids - Gratitude

As a mom and homeschooler, I love teaching my 5 boys all sorts of different things.

Some of those topics have been easier to teach than others.

Helping little ones learn numbers and letters was truly delightful. And then watching their faces light up as they put the letters together to form words and sentences.

Oh, and I adore bringing subjects like history, geography, math, and science to life with engaging and meaningful resources!

But, other important lessons (that aren't included in traditional academic resources) have been a bit more of a challenge. Luckily, more materials are being created and shared on things like growth mindset and character education.

And I say hurrah! I believe that it's essential to empower our children with academic and life skills to help them thrive. A big part of those essential life skills involves self-awareness and appreciation.

I'm always looking for and creating new ways to give our kids opportunities to flex their creativity, positivity, and learning fun. So, I'm super excited to share this free printable gratitude scavenger hunt with you!
