I saw the idea for this thankful leaves banner on Carina Gardner's site a few days ago. Today, I sat down and made it with the kids before lunch after making Indian headbands with paper feathers. I cut the leaves out by hand out of yellow, golden yellow, orange and red card stock using the template Carina provides. It didn't take long to make. K* was taking her time writing on her first leaf and S* was busy in the living room, so I just cut them out myself. And I just happened to have a stash of mini clothespins in my crafty supplies to use to hang the leaves up. We decided to hang it in the window in the kitchen. I figure we haven't been doing it all of November, but a few days the week of Thanksgiving break will still be fun. I'm glad we sat down and did it this morning.
Some links to other fun thankful ideas I thought about doing, but never got around to. A thankkful board. A thankful tree. Another thankful tree. And another tree. Some sort of thankful turkey would be a cute idea too!
