Much to my daughter's dismay, I am not a crafty person. Unlike many moms, I do not easily think up fun DIY or learning projects. Luckily, my mom and my sister come up with things for my daughter to do when the crafting bug hits especially hard.
Back in November, they helped my daughter make a "Thankful Tree" and we all wrote down things we were grateful for on leaves. I don't know what it says about us that this tree has been hanging on our coat closet door since then. Yesterday, my mom decided that she couldn't stand seeing a Fall tree any longer. Rather than take the whole thing down, we removed the leaves and decided to repurpose it into a "Love Tree."
Make It a Learning Opportunity
Once everyone was done writing down their words, my mom helped my daughter tape the hearts onto our tree. Now we will be able to go by and see what we love. It can be used as a way to remind us of our blessings. It can also be a reminder of things we want to pray for during the next month.
