Kids and of course your grandkids love to participate in Thanksgiving celebrations. They enjoy decorating, helping around, and creating Thanksgiving cards. Thanksgiving Day is perhaps the best time to talk to your kids about family values, tradition and gratitude. By observing you, they will learn the essential lessons of family traditions.

If you want your kids to develop a strong value system, use Thanksgiving quotes for kids. You can also use these quotes to adorn your Thanksgiving dinner table. Plan a ‘treasure hunt’ with these Thanksgiving quotes. Kids enjoy games. You can scribble each quote on a piece of paper and hide it. When kids find the ‘treasure,’ you can reward them.

“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all the other virtues.”
~Cicero

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

~Melodie Beattie

How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child’s personality. A child is resentful, negative—or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people.
