Thanksgiving Neighbor Gifts: Pastries Are a Delicious Way to Show Gratitude
Thanksgiving—I have been busy on Pinterest lately, pinning all my favorite holiday desserts and neighbor gift ideas to a board I created called "Holiday Yummies." I have found cute hot chocolate stirring spoons, creative cookies, fun fudge, and more.
As I was looking through my board, I questioned why I always wait until December to give out neighbor gifts. Wouldn't Thanksgiving be the perfect time to start?
So this year, we are making a few neighbor gifts in November to get into the giving spirit a bit earlier.
We identified a few families who really mean a lot to us and that we want to thank for being a part of our lives. We found this fun recipe in Family Fun Magazine and spent the afternoon baking, talking all the while about who we would deliver the treats to, why they were important to us, and why we were grateful to have them in our lives.
Next, they buttered the edges.
The end result was both delicious and an awesome way to help my kids learn about gratitude while having fun in the kitchen.
Visit Family Fun Magazine online for the recipe.
How do you help your kids get in the giving spirit? What do you do during the month of Thanksgiving to help them have an attitude of gratitude?
