Happy November! The holidays are approaching full speed, and first up is Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to spend time with friends and family, eat lots of yummy food (pumpkin pie, we can’t wait!), and count your blessings. However, counting your blessings shouldn’t just be limited to the last Thursday of the month! Here at Urgent Care for Kids, we are kicking off “A Month of Thankfulness” this November! We will have special “Thankfulness Thursday” posts here on the blog, and on our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages as well. We would love for you and your family to join us! Here are a few ways you can encourage an attitude of thankfulness in your children:
- Share what you’re thankful for on social media with the hashtag #UC4KThankfulnessThursday. We may be re-posting some of our favorites!
- Give back to your community. This can be by donating to your local food bank or shelter for their Thanksgiving meal, or if your kids are old enough, volunteer to serve Thanksgiving dinner at a shelter.
- Make a “Thankfulness Tree” as a family project. Each day this month, ask your children to come up with two to three things they are thankful for, and keep track of them. You can draw a tree on a poster and make each “thankful thing” a leaf, or you can simply make a list! Hang it on the fridge or another highly-visible spot, and on Thanksgiving, go over the list with your family.
We are so excited about our Month of Thankfulness, and we can’t wait to see what you’re thankful for! Don’t forget to follow along!
