Being Thankful (countdown/printable/keepsake)

Kattekrab Plane Tree Autumn Leaf Clip Art

I can’t believe it is already November! Starting today we are going to write one thing we are thankful for each day on a leaf and tape it to the banister or mantel so it ends up looking like garland. Not only will this be a Fall decoration for the month, but also a memorable keepsake. I’d like to turn this into a tradition and keep the leaves in a scrapbook or special box to look back on.

Here is the  Fall Leaves Printable I used on different colored cardstock.

Thanks to Mommy’s Little Helper for the idea and for the clipart.

    We are doing this too! Love it! We don’t have a banister or a mantel so I draw on our sliding glass door with a window marker (to look like a tree) and tape them on the tree 🙂
