A simple craft.
A new tradition.
A Thankful Tree
I wanted our girls to have a way to express the things they are thankful for… BIG and small. Fun things. Silly things. Real things.
I wanted them to take time while they were tracing their hands, cutting out the shapes and building the tree to dwell on being thankful.
We talked about each word that they wanted to write on the thankful tree.
Why were they thankful for that one thing?
And it was such a fun, beautiful learning time for the girls.
And for me, as their mom, to get inside their heads, hear their hearts and have a great conversation with my girls.
Thankful for so many things…
1} Family members like Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, church friends and of course… toys.
2} Our Bibles
3} God’s Goodness
4} and God’s blessings in our lives
5} our new bikes
and Schwinn for choosing us to be their Joy Agents this year
6} for Heaven and God’s Love and Life
7} for our amazing neighbors
8} Our house
9} Homeschooling, animals, air, food and beds
10} for little hands to teach and guide and love each day
that is our thankful tree.
What does your thankful tree say?
