How to Make a Gratitude Tree.

At work, my residents made a “gratitude tree”, where they cut out a leaf stencil out of construction paper, and wrote down what they were thankful for on the leaf, and hung it on a small, real, live, tree. They used a hole punch and some ribbon to tie it on the tree.

This looks like a fun craft to do with children and to teach children about gratefulness.

It also looks like a great activity for anyone, to practice gratitude.

      This is a great idea that they came up with at work. I should do it next year for Thanksgiving for my kids.

    Wonderful! Would love to do that, too. A great way to remember that we have a lot to be thankful for.

    That is a really great idea. Too bad Christmas time is so short. We need something similar for the whole year. My wife drew a tree on the wall of our living room. We plan to hang our family pictures on the branches. Maybe we could hang messages of gratitude also.

    Great year round project. You could do a different seasonal theme each month and leave the tree up all year. January–mittens, February–snowflakes, etc. (Can you tell I used to teach school in the “olden” days when we could integrate fine motor skill development and character education into reading and writing?) This would be a fun and meaningful activity for families.

      Those are great ideas. I used to work in the preschool. This is a great idea my workplace came up with.
