Thanksgiving Craft: Our Thankful Tree [FREE Printable]

We love thankful trees! They’re simple (and don’t require cutting!) and can easily be hung on the refrigerator, office, or desk area as a daily reminder. It’s a wonderful opportunity to talk with your kids & family about what they’re thankful for in their day-to-day lives. Each leaf becomes something they’re grateful for – simply write what you’re thankful for on the leaves.

Fall is such a wonderful time of year with the cooler temperatures allowing us to cozy up with sweatshirts and our favorite hot drink. Fall also brings us together with our family and friends as we celebrate all that we are thankful for. Fall has always reminded us to regroup and think about what we are am truly grateful for. We find it is easy to lose track of those important things throughout the year. So, this year, we wanted to have a daily reminder of how blessed we truly are.
