Thankfulness Tree

Involve the whole family in giving thanks through this Thankfulness Tree!  Trace the children’s handprints onto fall colored paper and help them cut them out , if need be.  Meanwhile, a teen or adult can prep the poster board with the title “We are thankful for…” and tree shape as seen below.  The children use glue sticks to paste their handprint leaves all over the tree.  Then, each family member can write things they are thankful for on all the leaves.  Display in the kitchen or family room for a meaningful Thanksgiving decoration. 

Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
1 Chronicles 29:13

Here are some of our cutie-patootie neighbor boys working on their family’s tree at our neighborhood Thanksgiving party last year.
