This Thanksgiving we did a little fun activity with the kids i.e. making simple Thanksgiving cards.
We started with some real leaves, pressed between the pages of a book for a day or two.
And painted on a concoction of glue and water (two parts white school glue + one part water = homemade “Mod Podge” like substance) to keep the leaves from getting too brittle.
We set them on wax paper to dry overnight.
We glued the leaves onto cards and wrote our sentiments.
We also cut little house-like shapes out of pretty scrapbooking papers to make colorful liners for the envelopes.
It’s a reasonably un-messy craft that allows little ones to practice their handwriting and results in cute cards to deliver to loved ones on Thanksgiving Day…don’t you just love crafts that let you feel like momma-of-the-year for a few short minutes? Yeah…me too.
