Default Thankful Tree

Supplies needed:
Construction paper (orange, red, yellow, brown, and other earth tones)
Crayons or markers
Glue or a glue stick

Have children trace their hands on construction paper. Then cut out the tracings. These will be the leaves.
Have the children write their names and what they're thankful for on each of the handprints.
Using brown construction paper, cut out a tree trunk and branches.
Glue or staple the tree tunk on a large piece of construction paper (or onto a bulletin board). Then glue or staple the handprint leaves to the tree.
For variations on this wreath: instead of using handprints, use cut-out leaves, tissue paper baking cups or torn-up scraps of paper.
