Fun Thanksgiving tradition

A couple years ago we started this fun tradition that the kids really get into. It is a thankfulness chain. Remember, those red and green paper chains we used to make in elementary school? It is similar to that!

We cut out strips of fall colored construction paper. Each night we each write something we are thankful for up until Thanksgiving. Anyone that comes for dinner in the month of November gets to make a link in our chain, too. Then I staple each strip in a circle making a link and connecting it to another. By Thanksgiving, it is huge! We read them all that night after dinner. It's fun and we all get a great visual of all we have to be thankful for!
