in honor of Thanksgiving
We cut a branch outside and trimmed it
and pushed it deep into a nice heavy potted plant.
Then we cut leaves out of colored paper
and wrote things we were thankful for
on each one.
We punched holes at the ends
and hung them from the branches.
We each had our own color.
Mine was teal, Daryl’s was red.
The kids had purple, green and blue.
The kids were so proud of our finished gratitude tree
and I have to admit it makes me smile too.
More thankful projects and activities are here.
And did you know about the Melissa and Doug recalls in Canada?
I think those of us in the U.S. should be aware of it, too,
since their toys all come from the same factories (in China)
and the holidays are coming.
Please go do some random silly thing now
and have a wonderful Sunday.
