I can't believe it's November and Thanksgiving season is upon us! This time of year always sneaks up on me. I always have the best intentions to make gifts or hand out thoughtful notes to people in my life but I'm usually playing catch up and fail to carry out my plans. This year I was thinking about how I rarely do anything special to say "Thank You" to the people in our life that work so hard, specifically teachers...let alone around Thanksgiving. Wouldn't it be a great tradition to start finding small ways to thank the people in our lives for simply doing an excellent job? So, I created this fun printable that you can give along with some Extra gum.

It's the perfect "just because" little gift to hand out to anyone! I decided to make the printable a little coloring book tag that kids can color to personalize it. I had my 6 year old help with coloring a few and she loved it. I know she will love thinking of a few people to help me hand these out to. I know I mentioned teachers earlier, but what about the people who probably never receive a "thank you"? My daughter and I thought about the mail carrier, firemen, the workers at our local YMCA, trash collecter, grocery store clerk and police officers. There are so many other people that we come into contact with everyday and probably don't even know their names.

Find some Extra gum. I thought the mint chocolate chip flavor looked yummy!

Color in the tag or leave it blank. Colored pencils work best. And then punch a hole in the corner.

Then, tie it on! I found my black and white ribbon in the Target dollar spot.

  1. What a great post! Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in all of the activities and things that need to be done at this time of the year...but this is a good reminder to also thank those people who do extra for us everyday. Thanks for sharing! #client
