Our Family’s Thankful Tree…

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.~ Thessalonians 5:18

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!  ~Psalm 107:1

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. ~Colossians 3:15



The kids took the time and wrote down everything they were thankful for…our thankful tree we did in 2012


We used die cuts to make cute leaves out of old paper, wrote what they were thankful for and tied it to the tree.

I had the children punch holes so that they could string the leaf and place it on the tree.  They never realized they were working on their fine motor skills during this fun activity.    🙂


The tree grew…and grew…by the end of the month it was full of thankful leaves!
