For the Family
Here is a great place for family members to keep a record of what they are thankful for.
What You'll Need:
-Card Stock or another kind of stiff paper
-Needle and thread
-Buttons, stamps, or other things to decorate the cover of the book.
The How To:
-First you will need to decide how big you want your book and cut it to the desired size. Then fold it in half
-Next decide how many pages you want in your book. Then cut your pages to the length of the book when it is open.
- After that, fold the inside pages in half.
- Then thread your needle and sew down the 'spine' (the middle) of the book to hold all the pages in.
-Next comes the decorating part. We used buttons and leaf stamps to decorate ours. Glueing the buttons on is easier than sewing them on for the younger ones.
And that's that! I am having my kids write down or draw something that they are thankful for at the end of each day into their 'I am Thankful' books until all the pages are filled.
It is a great way to help your family to remember what there is to be grateful for each and every day.
