When I was out school shopping the other day with my 14 year old, she noticed these ‘window markers’ and told me she thought we should use them to write things we’re grateful for on the windows! I was so happy she thought of the idea and was excited to try it because it was something we hadn’t done before.

So, here’s this week’s super simple and fun tip for bringing more gratitude into your home, courtesy of Kelsey, my 14 year old. It will help your children be more grateful. It will help you be more grateful! It’s make a Gratitude Window!

Just watch the short video (yes, this week it really is short!) and find out how to make your very own Gratitude Window this week!

A Gratitude Window is simple and fun and it’s just another tool in your Gratitude Toolbox to help you and your children focus your thoughts and awareness on the many things you have to be grateful for. Shaping your thoughts for gratitude, and helping your children shape theirs, is what this tool is all about!

Trying new and creative tools with your kids is also a great way to keep them engaged and build their gratitude muscles.

That’s it, super simple right? But as always, remember that knowing it, and doing it, are two very different things. You actually have to make a Gratitude Window to get the benefit of making a Gratitude Window!! So make sure to make yours soon!
