Gratitude Craft, Journal & Bulletin Board
This Thanksgiving craft helps students and faculty see that their plates are overflowing with gratitude and blessings. Students choose a placemat and brainstorm people and things that they are thankful for in their lives. This is also a mindful activity, meant to calm students with mindful coloring. It can also be used as faculty morale booster. Put some placemats in the lounge for teachers to discover. Display them in the hallways, classrooms or teacher's lounge.
