That's Brilliant! A Gratitude Project For Toddlers!
My friend Nikki is the most inspiring mom I know. She is always doing really fun and creative things for her son, Cam. She constantly inspires me to be a better mom myself. Earlier this year she started a “Gratitude Board” for her son and has been documenting it online and I’ve just loved the idea. I asked her if she’d mind me sharing it, because it is so brilliant, and she said yes. Click through to learn, in Nikki’s words, all about her gratitude project!
A Gratitude Project For Toddlers! Brilliant.
After a crazy holiday season, I decided to start teaching Cam to appreciate the “gifts” that we encounter on an everyday basis. So to make it fun, I bought a big chalkboard, and sit down and ask him what he is grateful for and then we write it out, take a photo and share it in the hopes that other people will sit back and take a moment to reflect and be grateful for the little things in life!
Thankful for... Balloons
These balloons were left over from my birthday and occupied him for hours!
Thankful for... Sky, Clouds and Buildings
He was feeling extra thankful on our drive home through the downtown area.
Thankful for... Freats
On Fridays we get “Freats” (treats.) I guess it’s time to start working with him on his “T”s
Thankful for... Days Off!
Laundry doing, movie watching, too-cold-to-function case of the lazies on this day.
Thankful for... Mommy
I swear he said it. Although I’m almost certain he was trying to get out of going to bed.
Thankful for... Technology
I may have influenced this one… But it’s the truth.
Thankful for... The Rain
We needed it… and apparently Meteorologist Cam knew it.
Thankful for... Sissy
Sissy is here!!!
Thankful for... Shampoo
Post-bath. He won’t let me use any other shampoo on him.
Thankful for... Discipline
We had a rough day at school, so we wrote his teacher to apologize. He may not be grateful now, (insert crying fit) but he will be one day.
Thankful for... Bandages
I think that makes two of us. Bed frame- 1, Cameron’s right leg- 0
Thankful for.. Easter
Happy Easter Friends!
Thankful for... Football
He said football, and then immediately said “Go 49ers”. He’s a smart guy.
Thankful for... Monster Trucks
This day was all about Monster Trucks… and apparently pirates as well. Arrrrggg!
Thankful for... Ice Cream
First two automatic answers everyday are “mommy” and “ice cream”, thinking mommy will then give him ice cream.
Thankful for... Naptime!
I think all Moms can relate to this one. ;)
I hope this project inspires you to take a moment to be thankful for all the little gifts in life, and to share that with your kids and families!
