Thanksgiving ideas: Ways to share your thankfulness

I’m wrapping up Thanksgiving idea week with another list of six ways to share your thankfulness at Thanksgiving! Here are six more great ideas to show your gratitude:

1. Fill a jar with conversation starters (“What are you grateful for every day?”, “Is there someone at the table you have a reason to thank?”) – via FamilyFun Magazine

2. Craft a paper quilt – via Let’s Explore

3. Make a Thanksgiving blessings board – via Tatertots and Jello

4. Show what you are thankful “four” – via Spoonful

5. Make gratitude rolls (yep! The paper is baked right in!) – via Beauty and Bedlam

6. Create a book of thanks and add to it every year – via eighteen25

    Do you think that if i put these in the correct spots in the cornbread batter after it's poured into the pans, it would work just as well?
