Countdown to Thanksgiving – 5 Days Left!

Continuing our Countdown to Thanksgiving, here’s a fun family activity to do the week of or day of Thanksgiving!

Our Thankfulness Tree

This month, to help our family focus on the things we’re thankful for, we’re doing a Thankfulness Tree.  Every night after dinner, we each put something we’re thankful for on a leaf and tape it to the tree.  If we have dinner guests, they participate, too!  I love to see our tree filling up with all the blessings God’s given us!

My six-year-old helped me draw the tree, and we hung it on our living room wall.  The leaves were cut out on my Cricut, but you could also find a pattern online and cut it out with scissors.  The kids love putting the leaves on the tree, and I love that they are learning about gratefulness.
