DIY Thanksgiving Garland


Make this DIY garland to celebrate all the things you are thankful for.This simple DIY Thanksgiving garland will help your family develop an attitude of gratitude.

I am not a Pinterest-perfect mom living in a Pinterest-perfect house.   We do a lot of crafts and I never end up posting them because the kids helped me with them so they are not perfect and don’t photograph well.  But then I said to my self, “Self, I’m sure there are lots of families out there who are just looking for purposeful, intentional ways to point their families to God, and a less-than-perfect craft may be just what they want!”

So I’m posting this simple Thanksgiving garland that our family does every day around the dinner table.

Can I just take a bunny trail for a second and talk about the dinner table?  One benefit to living the real food life-style is three full meals around the dinner table every day.  We have the sweetest conversations, memorize our Awana verses together, talk about the ingredients and how wonderfully God designed food for us, and we just spend time together.  The dinner table is where it’s at, my friends!

DIY Thanksgiving Garland

Ahem, back to the DIY Thanksgiving garland.  Every night at the dinner table we take a leaf cut out of construction paper by cute little three-year-old and five-year-old hands (until they gave up and I cut out the rest), and we write down what we are thankful for.  It’s like a game because we can’t repeat something that’s already been said in days past.  The kids really get into it and I’m really impressed with some of the things they are thankful for.

This simple DIY Thanksgiving garland will help your family develop an attitude of gratitude.

No tutorial here, just take a string or a yarn, hang it up however you like, and staple on the leaves each day as you fill them with thanks.

Simple.  Thankful. Intentional.

How do you teach your kids thankfulness and gratitude?
