Thankful Tree Craft

This tree if sooo fun for the kids. It is a messy craft my daughter just loved doing. It is a craft that can be modified for all ages.

You will need paper, glue, and paint.

1. Paint child's arm and hand.

2. Place hand on paper.

3. Cut out leaves.
4. Ask child what he or she is thankful for and write on leaves.
5. Glue on leaves.

You can also use this craft to teach about the seasons. Do 4 different trees and decorate each one for each season. Spring with blooms, summer full of leaves, fall with different colored leaves, and winter with no leaves and some snow.
