Wreath of Thanks

So I have been wanting to incorporate a fun, family craft night for awhile now and tonight we did a craft all together! So much fun!

I got this idea from the MomSense, Publication of MOPS International, November/December 2011 Issue on page 4.

We traced each family member's hands onto construction paper. Then we listed things each person is thankful for on the fingers of the paper "leaves". We cut a hole out of a paper plate to make a circle shape, you could use any sturdy cardboard material. Then we cut out the hands and glued the hands around the wreath. I then punched a hole in the top of the wreath, strung a ribbon through it and hung it on our door. Such a fun night!

CA and JP coloring their "hands".
