We started our Thankful Tree a few days late this year, but the kids have made up for it in enthusiasm. Millie was so excited to help me make the tree and leaves!
She wrote everyone's names above their heads and drew the faces and some other unidentifiable stuff above the tree. Kid art is the best. Also, the smiley face in the middle of the tree has a chin. Not sure where she gets this stuff but I love it.
Every night (ish) we each write a few things we're thankful for and put them on the tree. Max puts a leaf over everyone's face every time he gets a chance!
I really love doing this. At first it's pretty general, but after a few days of saying all the standard things, it really gets us thinking. Millie is especially benefiting from it this year.

Max likes to put on hats and glasses and any silly accessory he can find.
