Tree of Thanks
Start the Tree of Thanks as a fun Thanksgiving tradition and keep it displayed year-round as a reminder of the many things for which you are thankful.

You can build your own Tree of Thanks by following these steps:

  • Find a branch that has fallen off a tree in your yard and put it in a quart size mason jar.
  • Then secure it by filling the jar with smooth river stones and top the stones off with decorative moss.
  • Tie a ribbon around the top of the jar.
  • Then set out a bowl of metal rim marking tags and pens.
  • As each family member thinks of things they are thankful for, write that word on one of the tags and then tie it on to the branch as if it were a leaf.
  • It’s exciting to see the tree branch slowly fill up with “leaves” of thankfulness.
