More Thankful Activities

Happy Wednesday, my friends.  
Mr. Daisy's traveling has pro's and con's.  When he travels, it's perfect for crafting.  But his traveling while we're supposed to be MOVING is not so much fun!  He hasn't been home with us in 10 days!  I'm a bit overwhelmed with unpacking from California while still packing for moving plus chasing Little Man.  I am wishing I could fast forward to the part where we are happily settled in to our new place!  Yet I am trying to be grateful for his fabulous job and the chance to move into a home!
I am a bit out of touch with blog surfing, so in place of my regular Wednesday's Wowzers, I wanted to share some fun gratitude activities from last year's archives.  I stole BOTH of these ideas last year and loved them!  So be sure to check them out!

I saw this adorable thankful shadow box tree last year at Roots and Wings Co.  Last year, we wrote what we were thankful for on silk leaves each day and placed them on the tree.  (Roots and Wings Co. did the opposite--took leaves OFF the tree as they wrote what they were thankful for.)

I also love this thankful jar from Blue Cricket Design.  Becca has thankful activities that you can download and print and toss in a jar.  Your kids can select an activity that demonstrates gratitude.  Fabulous idea!!
Of course you can try out my gratitude tree advent also.  We're really enjoying this! 
It's not too late to start showing off what you're thankful for!

    Good luck moving! I don't know how you are handling it alone, but you are fantastic like that!

  3. As a person who has moved twice in the past 3 months, I can understand the feelings of wanting to fastforward…even just a month. I'm finally there and it does feel great. Still boxes that haven't been unpacked, but at least I'm here. Good luck and remember, it will eventually be over. Thanks for the cute ideas! Now if I can find the box with the cute supplies to make these projects….

  4. These are three fantastic ideas!
    I think we may try all of them!
    My husband travels also…I don't think I could tackle moving without him! My heart goes out to you! I will send prayers of strength your way!

  6. I LOVE your gratitude tree advent. I plan to make one, as it will be good for my kids to think about all they have to be thankful for before the "I wants" of the Christmas season set in. My family is also preparing to move, so I can totally relate to how you feel!
