Last year we started a new November family tradition with our girls.
I have seen so many options of how to make a thankful tree on Pinterest for several years now. After searching I decided something simple would be best for our family. I found a stick from the tree in our front yard, a vase and some rocks to fill the vase holding the branch in place.
Ta-da, our thankful tree was complete.
For leaves we cut simple shapes out of colored construction paper, punch a hole and tie a string of yarn to hang them.
Every day I spend a moment with the girls talking about thanks. What is it, why should we give thanks, and to whom should we be thankful?
Then they tell me what they are thankful for that day and we write it down.
