Being grateful is important to a happier life. So here’s a fun unique gratitude activity to encourage more awareness of things generally taken for granted. Grab a tiny inexpensive spiral memo pad and print out the free labels and quotes provided, then follow the simple instructions. These are wonderful any time of year. Give them to your kids. Make a batch for a family or group activity. Or create a basket full to pass out at Thanksgiving dinner. No matter how you use them they are a fun way to inspire thankfulness.
We’ve got some other great gratitude ideas also such as our Encourage Thankfulness with Gratitude Stones and A Thankful Heart a 30 Day Gratitude Challenge!.

Instructions, labels and quotations (pdf)
Get the flip top memo pads.
Cut out the front label in the size you want.
Glue it onto the front of your pad.
Cut out the quotations provided.
Glue them throughout your notebook.
Add a pencil that you’ve cut and sharpened to fit nicely in the metal spirals.
Add extras if desired. The books are wonderful as is but if desired, you can add extras to them such as Washi tape strips here and there, or a ribbon tied onto the spirals. Small charms can also be added to the spiral.
Also optional is spray painting the pencils. Its pretty easy to do. Just cover the top part with tape, spray paint and then cut them down to size.
This is such a cute idea! I really like it! I’m going to make one for each of my kiddos.
Thanks Julia! I hope your kids enjoy them!
This is lovely! Pinning. 🙂
