The Thankful Tree

I just love Little Page Turners adaptation of the wedding keepsake tree found on Style Unveiled!  She added the word "thankful" to the top of the page and created a wonderful keepsake for children and parents!  Their little fingerprints will be treasured for years to come.  Children should sign and date their creations!  As a mom, I can tell you that this would be hanging on the wall somewhere in my house if my children had done this in elementary school!

A few of my favorite fall books that would go well with this activity:

by Cynthia Rylant

Children just love Lois Ehlert's books!

Use these nifty pigment pads for fingerprints!
Or, make your own pads with paint and sponge pieces.
