Help your children to verbalize their thankfulness by doing this Thanksgiving tree craft.
Draw the basic outline of a tree trunk and branches on a large piece of paper. Let your toddler color the tree trunk in with a brown crayon.
Cut out leaves from differing shades of Fall colors (dark green, brown, yellow and red).
Ask your children to tell you things that they are thankful for. Write these one words down on a separate leaf for each word.
Help your toddler to stick them on the branches of the tree.
If they do not come up with enough things at the time of this activity, then stick the tree up in a visible place and add to it each time they think of something to be thankful for.
Below you will find a random list of things to be thankful for. Use these to help your Toddler pick their favourite one. Use it on the Thanksgiving tree craft, or use it on a daily basis to let your child know they have lots to be grateful for. Especially if they are having a sad day.
