Garland of Thanks


Materials

Scissors
Brown paper bags
Nontoxic paint (green, orange, and other fall colors)
Paintbrush
Leaves
Pencil
Hole punch
Thin twine

Directions

1. Cut the paper bags into rectangles approximately 4 inches by 6 inches. Cut out at least as many rectangles as you’ll have guests at your Thanksgiving celebration.
2. Paint one side of each rectangle in autumn colors. Blend different colors together–sloppy painting works great! Let dry.
3. Place a real leaf on the painted paper and trace it with a pencil. Cut out the leaf shape, and punch a hole on each end. String the leaves on the twine to make the garland.
4. Ask family and friends to choose a leaf and write what they are thankful for on the back.
