1. Make Thanksgiving Wreaths: Cut a small circle out of the center of a paper plate to make the shape of a wreath. Have the kids gather leaves from outside and glue them on to the plate.

Have both kids and adults trace their hands on construction paper the cut out their hands. Each person writes their name and what they are thankful for and glue it to the large tree (simply cut out a large tree trunk from brown construction paper with some branches – real or paper) and voila! You have a Thanksgiving Tree. *Take a picture of it for all to remember their blessings the next year, too!*
