FREE I Am Thankful for Worksheet (3 Simple Printables!)

Instant download of not one Thankful worksheet, but three different I am Thankful printables for kids of all ages or adults. Great way to start conversations at the Thanksgiving dinner table or to use at school!

Hi Friends! Last year I started a new tradition at Thanksgiving of playing games at the table.  I found a free Thanksgiving worksheet online, printed it out, and laid them at each table setting.

All of us had a lot of fun playing a trivia game and saying what we were thankful for. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving and the month of November coming up, I made my own Free Thanksgiving printables for everyone!

And since I know we all like different formats of free printable worksheets, I designed three different options for the gratitude worksheets for you to pick from.

The holiday season is a great time of the year to get your family members and kids thinking about what they are grateful for.

There is so much business and chaos in the world, that sometimes it’s hard to remember the little things in life that give us grateful hearts, which is where this thankful list worksheet comes in!

There is no physical product, just digital files to download at the bottom of the post.

How to Use I am Thankful for Worksheet

The first two printable worksheets are straight forward Thanksgiving activities.

The first grateful worksheet says “I am Thankful for…” at the top with numbered lines from one to fifteen. This is an easy and fun activity for any age group.

Everyone just simply writes down fifteen things they are thankful for.

If you have little kids, it might be a great idea to have older kids help them fill out their free printable worksheet.

The next part of the kids worksheets PDF file is a thankful list that starts with each letter of the alphabet. Along with thinking about good things, this is an excellent activity for kids to practice their fine motor skills and handwriting – a win win for teachers and parents!

You might have to help younger children with words that start with Q and X, but it should be fun to hear what they come up with!

Next of the free printables is a game the whole family can play. With the previous Thanksgiving worksheets, you simply have to write down great things you are thankful for, but this next thankful activity makes everyone think about why!

A lot of times we talk about what we are thankful FOR but for this thankful themed worksheet, I wanted to talk about WHY we are thankful for certain things.  It’s a great way to talk to kids about the reasons behind gratitude.

My five-year-old and I had a lot of fun creating this game.

We sat down at the park and I asked him to give me a word that started with T that he was thankful for.  He said “toys” and I asked him WHY he was thankful and he said because it gives him something fun to do.

I then said “turkey” and asked him WHY again and he said, “because it’s good to eat and gives us protein”!

Oh, the things that come out of his mouth always make me laugh!!!  I guess he is listening when I talk to him about nutrition!

As I was thinking of more, he said “Mom, do it again.  Give me another letter!”.  He was hooked!  We went through the whole alphabet and came up with a lot of ideas and he gave me a lot of reasons WHY he was thankful for things.

It was a very sweet moment and fun for both of us.  He also learned what utilities are (U in Thankful!)!

This would be the perfect activity to do in small groups too along with these other printable Thanksgiving games! Go do the THANKFUL list of things and each child has to say WHY they are thankful for turkey, home, animals, nature, etc.

Or pass them out at the table and go around and have everyone read their card and answer it.

If you want to keep going, just have everyone pass their cards to the right or left!  You can keep passing until everyone is answered or everyone is getting antsy!

I hope these get the conversation going at your Thanksgiving table.

You never know what others are thinking unless you ask them, so these Thanksgiving printables can open up even those introverts (Like my family!).  Enjoy the laughter and love that comes next!
