Thankful Garland


This may be one of my favorite Thanksgiving crafts of all time, I love that it looks pretty, is easy and it has meaning.

Thankful Garland:

What you need:
*Foam leaves
*Sewing needle
*Permanent Marker

What to do:
*Have each person of the family write what they are thankful for on the foam leaves(how many each person writes depends on the number of people in your family and the size of garland you want)
*On one leaf write :”We are Thankful for: then leave 2 leaves blank
*Use your needle and thread to thread the leaves together starting and ending with the blank leaves and putting the I am thankful for leaf right after the first blank leaf,  in a straight line, leaving the thread loose enough for the garland to bend a little(make sure to tie off the ends)
*Hang up

As an added bonus you can then spend time discussing the things you are thankful for and why.
