Fall Craft: A Giving Tree
Thanksgiving is such a wonderful reminder to be thankful. Each Thanksgiving, we take turns going around the table and sharing what we are most thankful for over the past year. This Thanksgiving, I thought that it would be fun to create a giving tree. I am encouraging our family and guests to write on these paper leaves what they are thankful for and also what they would like to give and share with others over the upcoming year.
When guests arrive, this tree is barren. However, soon enough the tree is bursting with life as guests add their leaves with handwritten sentiments. It's perfect for starting off the holiday season!
