I believe gratitude is essential to happiness and what better time to cultivate gratitude than at Thanksgiving? So I came up with an easy kids Thanksgiving craft that will help kids and/or adults express how grateful they are for the people in their lives. You can use these free gratitude printables as a holiday craft for the kids to do and they can then serve as table decor or as little teacher appreciation gifts. This post is sponsored by Voortman.

Free Gratitude Printables
I created these Free Gratitude Printables to make crafting super simple and give it a clean, polished look that you can use as part of your Thanksgiving Meal place settings. They can also be used as teacher appreciation gift printables, as a classroom project, or even as a Thanksgiving party activity.
Voortman’s new holiday flavors make great party favors. The Voortman Gingerbread men are so cute and they go great with the pumpkin flavors of Thanksgiving. (The can be used to top pumpkin pies or to make the crust or just to accompany a pumpkin spice latte.) They are also perfect to attach to these Free Gratitude Printables as part of the craft that focuses on a person and what you cherish about them.
Print the Free Gratitude Printables image above (just click on the image and then select file and print). Each image makes 2 gratitude cards so print as many as you need and bring them to your crafting space along with the supplies mentioned above.
Cut out the Free Gratitude Printables.
Hole punch about half way down the top portion before the writing and about 3/4 of an inch from the sides. So that gives you you two holes that will frame the Voortman Gingerbread.
Thread 24 inches of wrapping ribbon through the holes and add Voortman Gingerbread man between the holes and tie a bow. Trim extra wrapping ribbon if needed.
Fill out the gratitude portion. Parents and adults can make this part really special and personalized. It is always fun to see what kids will write, especially younger ones!
That is it. Your Free Gratitude Printables are done and ready to use as part of your Thanksgiving tablescape or you can fold them in half and stick them in ziploc bags for your children to give as little gifts.
I hope you enjoy these Free Gratitude Printables. Your kids may also enjoy this adorable paper turkey craft for Thanksgiving.
