Gratitude Wreath

I saw this on No Time for Flashcards and thought it would be a WONDERFUL activity for Thanksgiving and would be an easy and fun activity to do after the big feast is over and people are settling down, or in the days ahead to talk about the meaning of Thanksgiving and what it means to be thankful.

On the No Time for Flashcard’s wreath they say thank you in several languages but I thought it would be fun to have our family write down things we are thankful for in our lives.

What you need:
Construction Paper
Paper Plate

1. Trace Hands

2. Cut out hands and write what you are thankful for on them. While I cut out hands my husband worked with our son to write down things he was thankful for.

3. Cut out the middle of your paper plate.

4. Glue finished hands on plate. I used hot glue so we didn’t have to wait long before our son got to play with the wreath. We also put ours on our harvest display, it’s a little big for the pine tree but that’s okay! We also put our hand turkey from yesterday on the top of the wreath.
