The Thankful Tree

Looking for an easy and sophisticated way to get your family to reflect on the good stuff in their life? This is a perfect craft! Just find a branch and plant it in a jar with some colorful pebbles, sand, or other stable foundation and hang paper leaves from the branches. Then, whenever you have a quiet moment with your kids, ask them what they’re thankful for, write it on the leaves and voila- your very own Thankful tree!
