Looking for a creative way to write out reasons your family is thankful on Thanksgiving? 🖋️

Have your family and dinner guests write on real or faux craft pumpkins to express their feelings of gratitude. It makes for both a fun meaningful activity and cute table decoration you can use for years to come!

For this chalkboard Pumpkin idea, all I did was paint craft pumpkins using black chalkboard paint. Once dry, you can write on your pumpkin using chalk or liquid chalk markers.

On this example, I simply used a liquid chalk marker to write on a cream colored craft pumpkin. You can do the same on real pumpkins as well!

 These turned out so sweet!

I love the tradition of writing out what we are thankful for on Thanksgiving with my kids! This is a fun alternative to the “I’m Thankful Jar” activity we usually do!
