leaves of thanks

i collect small bits of nature. when i see leaves, small flowers, rocks, and things that catch my eye i pick them up.  i keep them in small bowls and plates around the house that i change every so often mostly with the seasons.  i have picked up so many leaves during our walks in the woods that i decided we would use them to make a centerpiece on the table.  i pressed the leaves in a book and then we each took a few and wrote what we are thankful for on the leaves. i added some acorns, twigs and pine cones, nothing fancy but we had a good time picking out which leaves we wanted to use.  it’s the perfect kid craft during this time of “thanksgiving”.

i also made a scavenger hunt list of easily found objects for us to use on thanksgiving day after lunch. it will be fun for the adults and kids alike and will be a bit different than our usual football throwing.
