Thanksgiving time is here and I am trying to teach my kids the importance of feeling gratitude and appreciating the things we have.
While life at the Haws home isn’t perfect, and things get hard sometime, I hope to teach my kids that by feeling grateful for what they do have, things seem better.
Every year we try a new and fun way to express what we are grateful for & this year I decided upon a Thanksgiving Tree.
There are SO many adaptions of this idea on the web (I even designed a different version HERE), so this in by no means original. But it’s a fun concept, so I thought I would design my own.
I also have a large format version available to print as an engineering print. It’s a LARGE PRINT THANKSGIVING TREE.
Every morning we list what we are grateful for and add a ‘thankful leaf’ to the tree.
It’s been a week or so and the tree is already looking nice and full! I thought my lovely readers would be interested in a Thanksgiving Tree of their own so I’m offering it as a FREE DOWNLOAD.

Going to have my four-year old tell us what she is thankful for and add some of our own too, thanks!
Love this idea… I did this last year with my boys and I am hoping to use your adorable tree this year to make them more mindful of gratitude.
Thanks so much, Lindi! I’d like to give a leaf to each family member (three different states) and then we can put them all on the tree when we are together at Thanksgiving dinner:)
Lindi, I love this! Tweeting, FBing, and sharing with on my personal FB wall too.
Thanks for sharing. I’m wanting my boys to focus on gratitude this month and hope this will be a great visual for them.
I think I’ll have the girls add a leaf a day the week of Thanksgiving to get our gratitude levels up for the BIG DAY!! 🙂 Thanks so much for the printable too cute!!!
This is so very cute! I’ve been looking for something like this for my Sunday School classroom. My kids love seeing their stuff hanging on the walls…LoL Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful work!
Hello. I haven’t had my family over for a while for a holiday dinner. What better holiday to do it. As I made my menu for the holiday. I wanted some cute thankful notes and then I thought a family project. I so love Pinterest. There I found this free printable. Made me smile.
