As the year draws to an end and the holidays just around the corner, we should take some time to slow down and reflect upon some of the best moments we've received throughout the year. To live a life fulfilled is to reflect on the things you have with a heart of gratitude.

This creative printable activity continues with this month's theme of thankfulness, gratitude and gratefulness. It helps to encourage reflection in kids about the people and things their lives they should be thankful for.
