As we head into November, I wanted to make a very visual reminder of some of the simple things our family is thankful for. This is an easy project you can do with your kids– a Gratitude Tree.
Supplies: Silk Leaves (from dollar bin at Target), twigs, popcorn kernels, glass jar and a sheet of cardstock or construction paper. Also need a glue gun and (optional) a sewing machine.
Grab your kids and come up with a list of words that describe your family– qualities you strive for and things you like to do together. Handwrite the words or print them out on cardstock or construction paper.
Cut them out and sew (or use hot glue) to attach them to the leaves
Use the glue gun to attach a “back” leaf as well.
Here are the leave before I attached them to the twigs. Kind of cute like this too.
Use the glue gun to randomly attach the leaves to the twigs and “arrange” in corn
