3 fun ways to use your pumpkins to show your gratitude

Do you still have pumpkins from Halloween?  If so, don't throw them away!!

I love that November gives us some extra motivation to be more grateful!   It's extra fun to display our gratitude around our home!

Here are three fun ways to display your gratitude with your leftover pumpkins!
(Picture to come!  My cute daughter destroyed that pumpkin, so I am in the process of getting a new one!)

Have your children draw pictures of what they are grateful for.  If you're like me, then you can't get enough of young children's drawings!  I just adore them, so why not add them to your "grateful decor" for the month of November?

Just simply add a leaf tag to the stem of the pumpkin.  You can write one or five things you are grateful for.  Leave it out so you can see it often!

As a family, write what you are thankful for around the pumpkin.  It's especially fun to do once a week or every night.  You might just be impressed with what your children say they are thankful for!

All of these would work well on your porch, in your home or even on your Thanksgiving tablescape!

PS: Sharpies work okay for these projects, but if you want it to look darker and last longer, use a paint marker!
