8 Days of Being Thankful


I. Love. Christmas. But in my rush to get to Christmas decorating/crafting I have a tendency to slack off on Thanksgiving. So do the malls–our mall was decorated for Christmas three weeks before Thanksgiving!

This year, there will be no Thanksgiving slacking! Because our team at iMOM had a great idea, an 8 Days of Being Thankful activity. It is a simple little craft (you supply the ribbon and the printable is FREE) to add some fall flavor in your home. Another big plus to this activity is that your kids will spend a little time reflecting on the blessings in their lives. You can use the printable all at once to make the craft, or you can do one each day in the week leading up to Thanksgiving and save the last one to hang as a family on Thanksgiving Day.

Knowing my tendency to backslide through this holiday, I decided to take on the challenge to make the craft myself for the iMOM photo shoot. Of course, I really knew that our graphic designer Reed would have all the work of creating the printable and all I would have to do is print, cut, punch and hang! Good news–that’s all you have to do too!

If you want to take it a step further, you can print out two copies, glue the circles back-to-back and make the circles two-sided. Or you can leave them one-sided and write why you are thankful for that person or item on the back.

So choose a way to use this free printable with your kids. I used the 8 Days of Being Thankful cut outs three different ways (see below) and it took me all of about an hour!


If I can do it you can!
