Make a Thankful Tree with your Child this Thanksgiving

Make a Thankful Tree with your Child this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving (and really, the entire month of November) is a great time to reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives.

You know I love trees and using fall leaves in a craft, so I expanded that concept to make a Thankful Tree. Making a Thankful Tree Supplies: Large white paper or posterboard for background (I used leftover packing materials) […]

The Busy, Working Mom’s Guide to Trying to Keep the House Clean
