The Thankful Tree!

Here is this year's Thankful Tree! We had a lot more leaves this year than last year so things are a bit jumbled up, but we had a wonderful time putting it together! This year we added a few extra touches that we have not done in previous years. Like Princess added the "Happy Thanksgiving" blimp, Spunky added the little squirrel coming out of the hole in the tree and the boy added the scary little dragon down at the bottom trying to burn down the tree! lol

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 if you would like 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!

Here is the link back to last year's tree! :)
