Thanksgiving is in a couple weeks which means that it's time to be grateful. Take some time to count your blessings.
In our house we put up this tree (made for a bulletin board). We are adding one leaf for every blessing we can name. No repeats!
We have a lot of laminated paper leaves (that we are actually going to write on with a wipe-off marker so we can use it next year) and we also have some pretty silk leaves to add to our tree. I think we got a pack of 75 silk leaves from Michael's craft store for a buck or two. MJ loves decorating this tree!
Since we hold preschool at our home the kids will be able to add to the tree when they come. This tree has an extra insert to make it taller but I kept it out so that the kids could reach the branches without any problems.
I would have preferred to make my own tree out of brown butcher paper as shown on THIS site (scroll to the bottom to see the picture) because it is SO much cuter, but I already had the tree and we needed to get this thing started ASAP.
