Okay, so I'm "stealing" this one from Better Homes and Gardens, but it's a super cute idea. In an effort to spread some positive thoughts in the world how about a Thankful Tree?
It's super simple, too!
- Small Branch
- Paint (Optional)
- Construction Paper
- You can either paint the small branch or leave it au natural. Place it in a small vase with pebbles, nuts, corn kernels, or anything else festively fall.
- Cut leaf shapes out of the construction paper.
- Write something you are thankful for on the leaf.
- Tie the leaf on the branch with ribbon.
It's a great way of reminding yourself and those close to you of the things you're thankful for.
This would also be cute for a grade school class project. Use a slightly larger branch (or a fake tree without leaves) and have the children write something they're thankful for.
See, we're already changing things up from the Better Homes and Gardens tutorial!
