Ann Voskamp, in her book 1000 Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, states…
God gives gifts and I give thanks and I unwrap the gift given: joy.
Leading up to Thanksgiving this year, I desire for our children to get a small taste of the 1,000 gifts challenge by drawing, writing, and maybe even taking some photos of things they are thankful for in their own lives.
I created a booklet for our kids to record their words and drawings of gratitude – simply called ‘20 Days of Thanks’. Each day has a short verse of Scripture to meditate on, a space for drawing, and a space for writing. Due to the various ages and fine motor abilities of our children, I made several versions – unlined for our toddler, single lined for our PreK child, regular dotted lines for our first grader, and some smaller lines for our third and fifth grader who will be using cursive.
Here’s a quick peek…

Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. (Psalm 103:2)
