A few years ago, we started the tradition of doing a thankful tree at Thanksgiving. I think the visual impact of seeing everything listed out really helps us to see how many blessings we have. This year's version is construction paper leaves hung with yarn on real branches.
For the first time, Miss M was able to join J in writing her own leaves and hanging them on our tree.
I let the kids write whatever they feel thankful for, we don't limit it to any certain number each day, so our tree is quite full already! We will continue to add leaves for the rest of November, and to read what is already on the tree every day.
