Happy Thanksgiving!


Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, and even though we live in the UK we still celebrate (as it's actually a really lovely holiday to take part in, no matter where you're from).  A fantastic meal and reflecting on all of the things that you are thankful for is a pretty nice way to spend a day.  We had our big meal yesterday (see the photo here) and today we are just being thankful for everything that we have in our lives.  It's a great way to teach Ethan about gratitude as part of his Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

I cut out some leaf shapes in coloured paper, and as he used crayons to draw on them I asked him about what he was thankful for.  Of course this is a difficult concept for a two year old, so I also asked him about what he loved and what made him happy.  We talked about lots of different things and I gave him many suggestions, that he agreed to.  Hopefully next year he'll be able to come up with his own things to be thankful for.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, no matter where you live :)
