It has become time again to change our seasonal tree. We took off the mice, spiders and cobwebs to make our Thanksgiving Tree.
I found some fake autumnal leaf vines on sale at JoAnn's and wound them around the bare branches. Then we picked out some yellow, orange, red, green & brown card and the girls mixed their own paint colors (from green, red & gold) and made hand-prints on the card.
Once the paint was dry we cut out the hand-prints and hung them on the tree with gold ribbon.
On the back of each hand-print leaf my eldest bunny wrote all the things we were grateful for. Here is their very cute list:
the color green
pasta & meat
Castro (our dog)
my sister & brother
gold & silver glitter
my beautiful children
dressing up clothes
Oma (German for Grandma)
the whole entire world
Listening to the girl decide what they were thankful for was so cute - this might well be our new family tradition.
Take a look at the other projects we have done with our tree so far this year:
Swedish Easter Tree
Recycled Cherry Blossom Tree
Coffee Filter Butterfly Tree
