10 Ideas For Teaching Generosity & Gratitude To Children

It’s November 1st which means the start of the season of Thanksgiving. While I’m always trying to teach my children to be thankful for what they have and generous to others, the month of November always seems to be a time when I really focus on new ways to teach these two things to my kids. I’ve rounded up 10 great ideas that I’m hoping to put into practice over the next couple months.

15 Ways to Teach Children to be Grateful from A Holy Experience

10 Fall Sensory Tables For Kids

I love sensory tables. It could be the preschool teacher in me or the fact that my children, who have sensory processing issues, enjoy playing in the table for long periods of time. I’m already thinking of Autumn themed tables so I wanted to share mine with you and 9 others I found online:

After this picture was taken I also added pinecones, fake apples, and cups/scoops

***

Check out this corn cob filled table from Reggio Inspired

***

Trigger the sense of smell in your sensory bin by using the scents of Fall like Fantastic Fun & Learning did.

***

I love this Fall farm themed table from No Time for Flash Cards

***

Mom To 2 Posh Lil Divas added straw to her Fall sensory table

***

Have apple picking on the brain? This apple themed sensory box by Pink and Green Mama is so cute!

***

Kids Activities Blog shares 10 natural items you can put in your Fall sensory tub. Great way to connect with nature!

***

Cloud dough is fun, especially when it’s a nice scent like this pumpkin scented cloud dough from Growing a Jeweled Rose.

***

Instead of dry pasta in your sensory bin, try cooked pasta. This completely different texture adds to the sensory experience. Visit 123 Homeschool 4 Me to learn more.

***

I like the scraps of materials and papers that Sugar Aunts put in their Fall sensory bin.
