I just wanted to share a family project we had leading up to Thanksgiving, and that we kept up for much of December. Our Thanksgiving Tree.
I drew the tree trunk on brown packing paper free hand, and stapled it to white paper on a cork board. I ordered various fall-colored paper leaves to write on. Every night after finishing family worship, we would write something on a few different leaves that we were thankful for.
As you can see, we easily filled up the tree by the time Thanksgiving came around. It was a great way for the kids (and me!!) to visually be reminded of how blessed we are by our Lord.
We will definitely be making this a tradition in our home.
Oh, and please forgive the messy, crooked handwriting. It happens. A lot.
