Give Thanks | Kids Night In Box


We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We enjoyed having our family over to our home and having a delicious meal. The holidays are a great time to show our appreciation for those that we love, so it was so wonderful that November’s Kids Night In box was themed “Give Thanks”.

As with all Kids Night In boxes, there is an itinerary booklet with suggested meals and information about the contents of the box. We did not do the meals this time being right after Thanksgiving, but I love that they include them every month. I also just realized that I forgot to put on our playlist that they provide, but that is also one of my favorite parts of the box!


First, we read the book Thanks from The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Eric Carle is one of our favorite authors and The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a wonderful classic, so this was a treat to receive this month.


Next, we used the Gratitude Hands and talked about what it means to give thanks and to help others. Practicing gratitude is very important and should be taught to our little ones starting as young as possible.


We talked about being grateful for the environment and all that it provides.  Then we planted a butterfly seed paper in our Watch Me Grow Pocket Greenhouse. It was snowing that day, so we bundled up and headed outside to get some soil, watered the soil and placed the bag in the windowsill. We haven’t gotten much sun lately, but the girls check everyday to see if anything has grown!

Next, we made this adorable Butterfly Gratitude Bag with chocolate covered pretzels to give to somebody special. They chose Daddy!

Finally, the girls got to recreate the box art. They made beautiful watercolor leaves surrounded by what they are thankful for!

As always, Kids Night In box includes everything you need in the box. The only thing not provided this month was the soil. This makes it so easy to enjoy a date night with the kids.

The December box will be available to order until December 13th at 7:00 pm EST. Click here to order now. They also have a Date Night In box to enjoy with your special someone. Use code NIBWINTER for 15% off all plans. The theme this month for both is Winter Wonderland and would make a great Christmas gift!
