We also made the creation of the tree an event. You can can create your thankful tree with your kids easily. All you need is:
- Cardstock or construction paper in fall colors
- Scalloped edge scissors
- Window marker (for free)
- PSA Essentials Topiary Peel & Stick stamps & PSA Stamper
Start out by quickly outlining some oval shapes, somewhat resembling leaves. (Not an exact science!)
When the leaves are cut out, stamp using your PSA Essentials stamp loaded with the flower basket from Topiary (or your choice!)
Using your window markers, draw a tree on the window. Using tape, stick your leaves on the window! (Please ignore my dirty window.)
I chose to write a quote on the window above the tree: "A Thankful Heart is the Greatest Virtue." I spotted this last year on vacation and really love it!
Here's how our tree turned out! Each day we add more and more leaves. I save the leaves and really enjoyed looking back on what everyone was thankful for last year. A fun family tradition!
Happy Almost Thanksgiving!
