A Thankful Heart


efc1ce6188bec442b6d318639462f22cIf you are having children for Thanksgiving, it is nice to have a project or two in order to entertain them. If your leaves are gone, maybe a quick trip to the craft store to buy felt ones. Putting an older child in charge of this craft might earn you some brownie points too.

Since this is all about Thanksgiving, remember to think about those things you are thankful for.

Practice having a grateful heart
