It’s never too soon to teach even the youngest kids about thanks and gratitude. Although these concepts are a stretch for a two-year-old to comprehend, certainly Veronika knows what she likes! And that’s the foundation for giving thanks down the line.
We flipped through a magazine together, and whenever we came to an image of something she loves, we cut it out.
Don’t limit yourself! Even something as simple as bicycles thrill my little toddler these days, so those were clipped out and added to our pile.
Likewise for images of dogs and beaches and pizza.
Soon we had a neat little assortment, and she used a glue stick to help me attach the pictures to a background of brown construction paper.
Cover with clear contact paper to protect against spills and you’ll have the perfect toddler place mat for Thanksgiving day!
