Thanksgiving Tree Leaf

This Thanksgiving Tree was one of our easy kids crafts favorites and we still have it after several years.

First, our daughter sketched a tree trunk on a large piece of cardboard. Next, it was carefully cut out with my son's utility knife. Then, we attached the upper part of the tree which resembled the branches. Finally, we wrote the things we were most thankful for on leaves cut from green, orange, yellow, and red leaves.

It was terrific! Each child really "got into" what they would put on his/her "thankful for" leaf. Of course, it became a competition to see which person got the most "hits" by having their name mentioned on the tree!

Each Thanksgiving holiday we read the leaf comments aloud and continuously add others to it.

This activity was very easy to make using only cardboard, colored construction paper, glue or tape to attach leaves, and braids to connect tree branches to trunk.

Thanks Claudette for sharing your Thanksgiving Tree idea. What I like most about crafts is that the things that are the most easy for kids to make are often the most rewarding!
How nice to be able to look up at all the leaves and see what everyone else has written.
