Gratitude should be expressed year-round, but many of us feel a stronger need to express it around the Thanksgiving holiday. Thanksgiving Gratitude Tree is a fun family craft to try with the kids.
Thanksgiving Gratitude Tree
You need: a branch, a vase, a foam block or some play dough, leaf-shaped stencils or cookie cutters, construction paper, scissors, pencil, thread or butcher’s twine, needle.
Put the play dough or the block into the vase.
Stick the branch onto the block or the play dough, so that it’s secure.
Using leaf stencils or cookie cutters, trace the shapes of the leaves on construction paper. Cut the leaves out.
Write out the things you are grateful for on the leaves.
Make a hole around the top of each leaf with a needle. Thread the thread through the hole, tie it and hang the leaf on the branch.
