I had been pondering a thankful tree to make with the kids. Nothing really came to mind that got me excited.  So I kept putting it off. Finally the time was now or never so what to do.  Well, like most things over here, cheap and easy came to mind.  I had a pack of foam leaves on the counter and decided to make that my focus and see what I could do with those.  After a little thought, the Thankful Banner was born (or crafted), lol.

What we used:

foam leaves from dollar section at Target, brown yarn, sharpies, and tape.

What to do:

I let the kids color a few leaves while I wrote things we were thankful for.  It was a lot of fun to hear some of the kids suggestions for things they were thankful for.  I put holes in the leaves with a hole punch.  After writing out the words and the kids finished coloring, I had the boys help me sort the leaves out by pattern.  Also a way to sneak in some learning.  Last, I threaded the yarn through all the leaves.  Kids can do this part but we were in a hurry before school, so I quickly got it done.  Now I just used tape and hung it from our fireplace.

I just love the colors and alternating sparkle and matte.

I had not planned to let the kids color over the sparkle side of he leaves but of course they did anyways.  However, it turned out nice.
