Tree Snack/Craft for Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree" -thankfulness

The radio stations and stores may be playing Christmas music already, but around here, we're excited about Thanksgiving. I don't think the topic of thankfulness should be a one month theme, but I do like to give it a little extra attention so we don't skip right on over to all the Christmas festivities.

Shel Silverstein's book The Giving Tree was a great intro for this tree snack/craft.  It also brought up some good Fruit of the Spirit topics.






First my kids arranged the honey wheat pretzels to make a tree:




Next they added candy corn and fruit snacks for leaves:




Loved the book, loved creating our tree...now it's time to eat!
