How to Make Gratitude Reminder Tokens for Being Thankful
Being thankful can be difficult when life gets in the way and the daily grind gets us down. Even teens and kids get stressed out with school and chores. Our Gratitude Tokens can help! Well, we have two printable versions that work for adults, teens and kids alike to help everyone remember the wonderful things in their life on those days when they forget. You can make either a “Let Gratitude Grow Flower” or a “Here Comes the Sun”. Print them, fill out the answer on the back and put them on a string, key chain, or ribbon. Then get your token to remind you just how lucky you are when you need it most! If you’d like more gratitude ideas check our very popular Encourage Thankfulness with Gratitude Stones and our A Thankful Heart, A 30 Day Gratitude Challenge, also with awesome printables!
Being Thankful Reminder Token Supplies
- Printables Below
- Small hole punch I prefer a 1/8″ size for string. A regular size will work but the hole may need to be punched a bit further up into the petal or raindrop.
- String or Chain or Key Ring that snaps open
- White Cardstock This is what I keep in stock at home. Its 110 lb very bright so its heavy. You can buy smaller packs that are not quite as heavy though I do like heavier weight cardstock for this type for project.
