Here are 2 ways to create gratitude wreaths.

Supplies:

  • Paper plates
  • construction paper in different fall colors
  • glue
  • scissors 
  • pencil
  • marker

Directions:

  • Cut out the inside of a paper plate.
  • Trace your child’s hand on several different colored construction pages.  You will probably need about 20 different handprints.
  • One each handprint, write what your child is thankful for.
  • Have your child cut out the handprints.
  • Glue the handprints on the paper plate.
  • Be sure to date the project because it will be special for years to come.

Supplies:

  • Grapevine Wreath
  • Pinecones
  • Glue Gun

  • Marker

Directions:

  • Hot glue gun pinecones to the grapevine wreath. 
  • Allow to dry.
  • On each tag, write one thing you are thankful for.
  • Punch a hole in each tag.
  • String the ribbon loosely through the tags.
  • Wrap the ribbon with the gratitude tags around the wreath and tie in a bow.

Every night before our prayers we discuss what we are thankful for from that day.  Then we thank God specifically for these things in our prayers.  BusyBoy and GigglyGirl say Thank You instead of Thankful, hence the name Thank You Journal rather than Gratitude Journal.  This year, I think we will cover an old journal with a brown grocery bag.  Next we will decorate the grocery bag to make it special for us.  Then each day in the next year we can write down what we are thankful for each evening.
