Since I typically have my Christmas decorations up pretty early in November, there isn't much Thanksgiving stuff left in the house in November. However, I still make sure we celebrate Thankfulness in the month of November. In years past I've done a Thankful Chain with slips of paper. I've even had Leaves cut out and stapled onto a string, on the mantle too. The last several years, I've narrowed in on our Thankful Tree. It seems the best way for the kids to be involved.
I simply hand draw the tree with tons of limbs, cut out tiny leaf shapes in all kinds of Fall colors, and put the tree on our refrigerator. Each day, we write out one thing we're thankful for and glue it on the tree. It's a great way to get the kids involved and remember how blessed we are!
If you make your family a Thankful Tree, tag me (@shape_her) so I can see it!
Supplies Needed for your Thankful Tree:
Orange/Yellow/Red construction paper (for leaf cut outs)
Black Sharpie (for writing)
Glue Stick (for the kids to glue the leaves on)
