What Is a Thankful Pumpkin?

Every Parent Needs to Steal This Mom's "Thankful Pumpkin" Idea Because Gratitude Matters

Carolyn Henderson Copeland knows that instilling a sense of gratitude is paramount when raising kids. And while it's usually easier to look at the glass half-empty in life, it's also important to take the time to appreciate what you have. Carolyn shared a simple tradition she feels every parent should know about on Facebook, and it's delightfully easy.

"Want to start a new family tradition that will teach your kids more about thankfulness? Every night for the month of November, gather as a family and add a few items to your Thankful Pumpkin!" she wrote in the caption.

Judging by the comments section, other parents are planning to introduce the tradition to their households. The post has racked up more than 68,000 shares and 26,000 reactions so far, and yep, count us in!
