Thankful Chain

For Family Night on Monday we talked about how it was November, that we celebrate Thanksgiving this month, & why we do.

Then we made made a list of some of the things we were thankful for & made them into a chain to count down until Thanksgiving.

We tear one off each morning, talk about whichever item is listed & other things we're grateful for that day.

It stays on the wall, along with the scripture we focused on too, so that everyday we see it, remember how blessed we are, & how grateful we should be for all we have.

Such a totally cute idea with the chain! And I love the fun things they came up with.
We're creating one too but ours is going to be a string of leaves. We started to cut them out but need to finish it up!
