Gratitude Tree

I absolutely love November!  It's a time where everyone reflects on the blessings in their lives.  Gratitude is a quality that we are trying to instill in our children.  

This year I thought it would be fun to create a gratitude tree out of vinyl lettering. Of course you could recreate this with butcher paper or construction paper.   Each day we write on a leaf things that we are grateful for.  I committed everyone to write at least one thing per day that they are thankful for.

What is amazing is that it is actually hard to only write one thing.  Once we start thinking about something that we are grateful for more and more things come to mind!

I can't wait to see the tree by Thanksgiving!  It will be wonderful to see all of the leaves full of gratitude!
