Our Thankful Tree

Since, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I wanted a way to teach my little lady about being thankful for what God has giving us. I found a branch in my backyard and stuck it in a pot to make a tree. Then to make the leaves, we use white coffee filters and painted, yellow, orange and green. After the filters were dry, I cut out leaf shapes. My little lady told me different things that we are thankful for and I wrote one on each leaf. I used my glue gun to attach the leaves to the branches. The thankful tree will be used each night as we will pick one leaf and pray for the things or people we are thankful for.


  1. I love this! We did something similar; we made a yarn turkey and on each feather, listed something we're thankful for :)
