One of our readers’ favorite posts over the past few years has been Kate’s roundup of 5 beautiful gratitude journal printables for kids — and frankly, for us adults too.

Click over and you’ll find some terrific ideas, but one of my favorites is absolutely free: This printable gratitude jar page from Space and Quiet. While she has great instructions for cutting it out and pasting it directly into a gratitude journal, I think you can use it all on its own as a coloring page for all your guests.

Just place each one at each place setting at your Thanksgiving table along with colored pencils, crayons, or fine-tip markers (if you don’t use a white tablecloth at Thanksgiving, ha). Younger kids can color it in, while older kids and adults can fill it with a list of things they’re grateful for, illustrate a single one — get creative.

If you’re really feeling crafty and can make the time, you could photograph each gratitude page, then turn the set into an affordable photo book — this 6×6 photo book from Shutterfly includes 20 pages for just $9.99 each or try the softcover photo books from Artifact Uprising. A few weeks later, you can send one to each of the families at your Thanksgiving table as a thoughtful reminder of your time together, or even as a creative holiday gift.

They’ll all be feeling grateful for you.
