I often like to post a list of things I am thankful for on Thursdays, but this Thursday I have decided to show you a project I did with the kids to introduce the upcoming holiday. It is a Thankful tree. I first used the die cut machine at the library to cut out leaf shapes in fall colors. I then asked Landon what he was thankful for and we wrote those on the leaves. Then I helped both Elaine and Landon make hand prints in fall colors on green paper. Then I cut out each hand. I used a piece of brown paper for the trunk and then placed the "leaves" to create the tree with a few falling to the ground. I was pleased with how it turned out. Now we have a little reminder to be thankful.
We are also learning:
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
