Thanksgiving Blessing Tree

I ran across this idea. Thought you might want to use it:

Make a tree out of construction paper and hang it on the wall. Every day put leaves on it with things you are thankful for. By Thanksgiving you should have it completely filled and running over. Just a way to help the kids and grownups to remember what God has done for them. You can make your leaves out of colored construction paper like fall leaves.  Or, trace your child’s hand on different colors of construction paper.  Hang each “leaf” upside down on the tree.  Curl the fingers slightly by rolling up over a pencil.  Write the thankful statement on the palm of the hand.

Note: I posted the above idea in 2009, but this year I found another wordpress blog with a similar idea. Check it out:
