Things We Love Autumn 2020

1- The 3 Minute Gratitude Journal for Kids

A favourite of parents worldwide, this journal is a great, hands-on way to introduce your children to the concepts of gratitude and positive thinking. Every day of the week, your child fills a page with spaces to do the following: write down three things they’re grateful for, name the person who brought them joy, circle the smilies that best describe how they feel, and draw or write about the best part of their day. The journal also contains weekly prompts for gratitude-related activities.
