For the past few years one of my favorite things my family and I do in the fall is sit down and write all of the things we are grateful for. I have tried displaying these things in different ways (see Vinyl Thankful Tree and my Be Thankful Mantel) but I’ve been wanting to come up with something we could pull out and use each year. So I designed a printable Thankful Tree and I love it! I’m sharing it with you today so you can make one too! It’s the perfect family night activity. It’s fun to see what my kids put year-to-year… for example, my boys are currently binge watching The Office and so that made the tree (twice). Ha! In years past Pokemon, Dora and The Indianapolis Colts have all made it on to the thankful tree as well. So cute!
All you need to do is download the tree print HERE and print the tree as a 16×20 (I printed mine at Costco). Then put it in a frame or display it some how in your home.
Then download the leaves HERE and print out a sheet for everyone to write something they are thankful for on each leaf.
Then cut out each leaf (I would have everyone cut out their own if they are able) and adhere them to your tree!
I had fun placing some of them off the edge of the mat for a more 3D effect. You could also slightly curl some of the leaves or fold them in half down the middle to create a more leaf-like appearance!
I love this tradition and am so happy to have a way to re-create it each year so easily!
