The Thankful Tree!

I  wanted to share a craft that we have decided should be a tradition in our household! This is our first year doing it and we all thought it was fun! We call it the Thankful Tree.

Poster board
Colored pencils
Construction paper

Each person traces their hand multiple times on construction paper. Of course all in Fall colors and then we cut out all the hands(we usually do 3hands per person in each color)! After all the hands are cut out then we write something we are thankful for on each of our hands. Then draw a tree trunk and branches on a piece of poster board and decorate how you like. Then just glue all the hands to cover the tree as if they were leaves. I like to make a few look like they are falling from the tree since it is the Fall! There you go you have a Thankful Tree made out of all the things you and your family are thankful for this holiday season! :)
