Gratitude ABCs: A to Z Gratitude Worksheet (Free Printable)

This Gratitude ABC’s worksheet (or A to Z Gratitude list) is the perfect Thanksgiving activity for kids and adults. Use it as a fun activity at home or in the classroom.

Being thankful and expressing gratitude can become such a habit we don’t give it a lot of thought.

Gratitude alphabet worksheet for kids

I know for me it’s almost reflexive to say thank you when someone holds the door or helps me in some other small way. It doesn’t take much thought the words just come out.

For Thanksgiving this year I really wanted to make sure I took time to think about what I’m grateful for, not just quickly list things that don’t take much thought. So I created a Gratitude ABCs printable.

I think it’s important to be thoughtful in our gratitude.

It’s easy and takes little thought to list some of our blessings, yet if we really think about it we have a lot more to be grateful for than we realize.

ABC’s of Gratitude Worksheet

The Gratitude ABC’s printable is perfect for a Thanksgiving Day activity or any time leading up to the holiday.

Making a abc gratitude list is a great activity to keep kids busy while you make Thanksgiving dinner, or to use in the classroom before the holiday break.

This free printable gratitude activity is designed to help you be more thoughtful in expressing gratitude

When you look at life through eyes of gratitude, the world becomes a magical and amazing place. Jennifer Gayle Quote #inspirationalquote #quote

The sheet lists each letter of the Alphabet with space to write something you are grateful for that starts with that letter.

It’s easy to think of something I’m grateful for that starts with some letters (F – Food, S-Sleep) other letters take more thought (X anyone?).

After filling out the gratitude abcs you’ll have an alphabet gratitude list with things you are grateful for.

Gratitude ABCs

Over the years this post has been so popular I decided to add a couple of new printable versions of the gratitude abc’s.

At the bottom of the post you will find three different options of this fun gratitude worksheet you can use for your family or class.

Ways to Use the Gratitude ABC’s Printable

Here are a few ideas of how you can use the gratitude worksheet. (There is no wrong way to use this worksheet.)

Gratitude Journal Page

The first and most simple way to use this printable is to simply print out a copy for each person and let everyone fill in the lines the best they can.

This is a great Thanksgiving write activity and makes a unique gratitude journal page.

Gratitude ABC’s Game

You can play a Gratitude ABC’s game kind of like Thanksgiving Scattergories. Instead of different categories with the same letter, you have the Gratitude category and different letters for each line.

Playing this game is simple first decide if you are going to play teams or individually.

Each team or individual will need a Gratitude ABC’s page.

Set the timer for a predetermined amount of time. I think 2 minutes works well, but you can decide what will work best for your family.

During the 2 minutes, each team (or individual) will try to come up with something they are grateful for, for each letter of the alphabet.


Each word that starts with the assigned letter is worth one point. For example, if Sam put Grass for the letter G Sam would get 1 point if Julie put Green Grass she would get 2 points.

If two or more people put the same thing for a letter they don’t get points. For example, if Grandpa and Grandma both put Pie for the letter P neither of them would get points.

To keep this game simple those are the only two factors in scoring any disputes that must be put to a vote and ultimately the players decide if something counts or not.

Just remember the point of this game is to have fun, make memories, and remember how blessed we are.
