My friend, Char, had this idea on her blog and I immediately LOVED it. It's called a Thankful Tree. We did it tonight with our family, and my kids had a lot of fun with it. I got some brown butcher paper from Robert's and cut out a tree. Then we cut out some leaves with colored construction paper. Thanks Char for the leaf template. We each thought of two things we were thankful for and wrote those down on our leaves. I cut up plenty more leaves so every night this month, we plan on thinking of things we are thankful for and adding those to our tree. It's a great way to teach my kids about Thanksgiving and get in the spirit of gratitude.
