The countdown for Thanksgiving is on! We’re a little over a month away from a smorgasbord of delicious main dishes, side dishes, and desserts! During this time I enjoy stopping to take a moment to reflect on all of the things that I am thankful for in my life. Sometimes as a busy mom working a full-time job I forget to stop and appreciate the good things I have going on. From my family, my health, to my friendships and good fortune. I’m teaching my children to do the same. With that in mind, I created a printable Thanksgiving Countdown to keep track of how many days until Thanksgiving. It also has a space to reflect on something we are thankful for each day!
The free printable is available as an 8.5×11 pdf file at the bottom of this post. Download and save it to your computer. Open it in Adobe Reader and print it onto paper. Trim it down to 8×10, and place inside a picture frame.
Using a dry erase marker, fill in how many days until Thanksgiving on the Turkey’s tummy. Next, write down what you’re thankful for in the spot provided.
Thanksgiving Family Activity
A great time to do this Thanksgiving activity as a family is around the dinner table. Take a moment each night to discuss what everyone is thankful for. Hold a family vote to decide which one gets written on the countdown that day.
It truly is a great way to take time as a family to acknowledge how grateful we are for the things and the people in our life!

Looking for a fun Thanksgiving-themed Kids Craft? I used this same turkey illustration to create a fun activity for kids that is perfect for the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, or even as a way to entertain the kids while they wait for their Thanksgiving Feast.
This Snowman Christmas Countdown is a fun way to count the days till Christmas and also doubles as a kids craft!
