Tree of Gratitude

Here is a picture of my Thanksgiving Week art project. I was quite pleased with the results. I had everyone (me, Paul, the boys and our guests) fill out a few leaves with what we are grateful for.

Thanks to Karen E. for the inspiration!

  1. Very cool! Is your *other* tree up in your house yet?

  2. Not yet, Colleen! We go get in next Sunday.

  3. I did that one too! It turned out great. Now we're 're-purposing' the tree…we put all the leaves in 'piles' at the bottom of the tree and we are making and attaching a Jesse tree symbol through advent. I'm too lazy to come up with something new this year. 😉

    I just saw your fantastic grateful tree pic here. It seems like we share the attitude that “Gratitude is good for you.” Grateful Nation is an online community that gives grateful people the opportunity and resources to connect, give back, and be thankful. Jump into the unending cycle of gratitude ~

    Thank you, Vanessa

  5. we did something similar for Palm Sunday…we traced our hands and made a "palm tree".

  6. Great idea!
