With the holidays approaching, it’s the perfect time to adopt a mindset of gratitude for our daily gifts and a generous spirit toward loved ones in our local CommuniTea.
That’s why we created this do-it-yourself gratitude calendar! It’s easy to assemble and a fun way to engage family, friends — and even strangers — in nurturing gratitude for self, others, and this beautiful planet we inhabit.
Our calendar starts November 1 and goes through Thanksgiving. Make yours any time of the year for the full month, a week — whatever timeframe works. Let’s get started!
✨ ✨ ✨
- Envelopes and note cards
- Tea bags
- Garland or string
- Clothes pins (or any type of clip)
- Numbered stickers (optional — you can also write on the envelope)
- We used these kraft paper envelopes with matching note cards. Any envelope / note card combo large enough to hold a tea bag will do!
Create your list of gratitude acts and write each one on a note card. (Here’s the list we used.) You can also print the cards, but we like the personal touch of hand-writing.
Assemble the envelopes by placing one note card and one tea bag in each envelope, then add a number sticker.
Find a place to display your calendar and securely hang the garland or string. Attach each envelope with a clothes pin or clip.
LET’S CREATE A MOVEMENT OF GRATITUDE!
Please follow along, spread gratitude in your local community, and share using the hashtag #CommuniTeaMatters. Throughout the month we’ll surprise participants with tea-riffic goodies.
