Thankful hands tree

We had a blast making this yesterday:

It was easy, fun, and inexpensive to put together and gave us  a chance to talk about what we are thankful for, even if it was something that seemed small or insignificant. It was interesting to hear their variety of answers! (It's funny how "McDonald's" was in their top five! ) When the hand tracings were cut out and I was ready to write an item on each, I could barely keep up with Isaac and Emma's steady stream of praises. I think we may need to make a second tree just to hold the rest! 

I hung this tree at eye level in a high traffic area of the house so that we will be seeing it many, many  times throughout the day. It's a good reminder for all of us (including the adults!) of just how blessed we truly are.
