I wanted the girls to list out things they are thankful for and this was our simple solution…
Strips of colored paper
Cut out your strips of paper (add a fancy shape if your heart desires). Let your kids write things they are thankful for. Then, run the strips of paper and the twine through the sewing machine using a zigzag stitch at the top (or you can just tape or glue the twine onto the back of the paper). I hung ours up from the ceiling and it gives it this cool kind of twirling effect.
My big three girls got in on the being thankful action. I can’t quite comprehend what Soul’s thankful for, but I’m going to guess it’s for shoes and makeup because those are her favorite things… oh boy! I do love reading through all their thankfulness and apparently, Brave is even thankful for numbers! I never would have guessed as math isn’t a fave subject around here. I think it’s good for the girls to go through a list like this often. I really want them to be constantly developing a deep heart of thankfulness, after all, we do have so much to be thankful for!
Do you have anything you are particularly thankful for at this moment? I just ate an In-N-Out burger, so my tummy is very thankful for that.

You always take ideas and make them even cuter! I wanted to tell you to check out my blog posting from a day ago because I posted the cutest little Russian animation. It’s about 10 minutes long and your girls would love it! I thought of you when I posted it! 🙂
Great idea! Too bad we don’t celebrate thanksgiving in Belgium.
I love this idea so much! I’ll be featuring it on The Crafty Crow soon 🙂
