A Tree of Thanks

You’ll need a piece of large craft paper, crayons, tape, and some real or paper leaves. Draw a large outline of a tree and hang it up on a wall. Ask your child to write some things she’s thankful for on the branches like family, books, or a best friend. Tape the leaves by the stem so they cover the words, and add as many as you’d like all week long.
