We’ve done gratitude trees in the past (2010, and 2012), but I was still surprised at how adamant my boys were about making gratitude trees this year…they both wanted to make their own so we have two trees reminding us of all of our blessings this Thanksgiving season…
This year, we put the scripture Psalms 107:1 on a paper inside the vase: “O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.”
Super simple to make, and a great physical way to take note of everything we have to be grateful for. So far this year, my boys are grateful for: parents, Duke (the dog), Jesus, Holy Ghost, God, family, the sun, earth and moon, mom, dad, brothers, and friends.
One of my favorite parts of these trees is that as the trees outside grow bare, and everything seems to die, our little trees grow with blessings and become full.
