Thanksgiving is around the corner (at least it is in the U.S.) and what better way to get your kids in the spirit than to create a Thankful Tree together. I saw something similar at a local craft store and they wanted $100 for it….my entire cost $2.97
Here is what you need:
A tree branch (preferably one with lots of twigs)
A bucket or pot to put the tree in
Sand (or I used a foam ball) to secure the tree in the pot
Spanish Moss to cover the base of the tree
Hot glue gun
Construction paper leaves (or foam leaves, like I used)
Cut out leaves using construction paper (or cheat and purchase foam ones at a craft store).
Ask your kids to list things they are thankful for.
Write them (or have them write on it if they are able) on the leaves, using one word.
Secure tree branch to bucket or pot using your sand or foam ball.
Cover the base of the tree with Spanish moss.
Glue leaves on the tree. (Make sure the adult does this part)
