Thanksgiving Box

Quote of the Day
“Giving up is an F at life”
Thanksgiving- how do we show our appreciation? How do we say thank you for everything we have? Here's a fun idea. Make a Thanks Box for the people you want to thank, such as your parents or grandparents.

Make a Thanksgiving Box for someone important to you. First you will need a box. It can be cardboard or a shoebox. Decorate the box with pictures and your favorite colored construction paper. For example: if you were making this box for your grandma, you could cover the box with cute patterned paper and paste pictures of you and her on it. You could even add buttons and stickers to get more creative.

Okay, here's the fun part. It'll take some thinking skills... so get ready. Think of what you want to thank your (Example: grandma) for. Is it the present she gave you last Christmas? Is it her sweet smile? Is it her warm, chewy cookies she bakes for you every time you come to her house? You should probably make a list of this ideas so you don't forget them.

Now you're going to symbolize the things your thanking them for. If you're thanking them for love, put a stuffed heart in the box. Symbolize all your other things and place them in the box. 

Thirdly, you are going to include special things in the box. It could be pictures, or a poem she wrote you, or a painting you made together. Whatever it is, make sure it's something valuable between you two. You can even put a scrapbook in the box. 

Make sure the insides and outsides are completely decorated and give your box to the person you're thanking on Thanksgiving Day. It will be so special for the person to see how much you care about them and how you're truly thankful for the things they do!
