Did you know that National Thank You Note Day falls on the 26th of December every year? It's that time of year where we sit down and handwrite little notes to express our gratitude for the people around us. The truth is, there's always someone to be thankful for in our lives and we need not wait until the end of the year to thank them.

This creative printable activity helps to encourage our kids to think about the people in their lives to be thankful for (and express that gratitude).

Let's go!
