For the last couple of years we have come up with a way to display our thankfulness throughout the month of November. Two years ago is was a tree with leaves that listed all of the things the kids were thankful for. Last year it was a tree again – but this time a Dora Tree.
The free printable for the Dora tree can be found on the Nick Jr. website.
This year we chose to do a turkey.
I helped the kids trace their shoe to make the turkey body. We added the turkey feet, face, and google eyes (because google eyes make everything that much more cute) and started writing down our thanks. I wanted this to be a project that would last all month long so we wrote a feather of thankfulness each day but this could just as easily be used as a family project on Thanksgiving day. What a special way to count down the days to the Thanksgiving holiday. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
