Thanksgiving Tree

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
blankets
coloring
toys
Castro (our dog)
food
my sister & brother
my scooter
friends
color tree
blanket bunny
gold & silver glitter
TV
paint
chocolate
clothes
Mummy
Daddy
Ariel
bed
my beautiful children
garden
Cinderella
dressing up clothes
leaves
Hilda
Oma (German for Grandma)
Papa
Teddy
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:
Valentine Tree
Swedish Easter Tree
Recycled Cherry Blossom Tree
Coffee Filter Butterfly Tree 
Halloween Tree
