What would your feathers say?
The Family Gratitude Turkey
Most of you will remember the much loved gratitude turkey craft project we all made in elementary school or now get as gifts from our kids or grand kids, well here’s a new twist on an old favorite that involves the whole family adding a feather of gratitude. What a great way to teach your children about the true spirit of Thanksgiving and remind yourselves and your children how fortunate you are and the importance of making time to be thankful for that.
The Family Gratitude Turkey Inspiration
I was remembering back to when my grandson gave me this beautiful turkey centerpiece with words of what he was grateful for written on the feathers. Not only did it serve as a show stopper centerpiece at dinner, it was a very special and meaningful gift with the feathers symbolizing what Thanksgiving is all about. I got to thinking it might not be such a bad thing for the adults to put into words what they are grateful for too and that was the inspiration for the family gratitude turkey. I wish I’d thought of it thirty years ago.
