a week of thanks: day two

How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative—or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people. :: Sir John Templeton

trying desperately to plant seeds of thankfulness in my own children's hearts.  here is a little inspiration...
these are some super cute thanksgiving craft ideas i found on the parents website.
i am definitely going to try out a few of these with my own family.
would love to see what you're doing to give thanks this season too!
i'm hoping some of these projects will extend into the rest of the year so that we will continue our attitudes of gratitude long after our bellies have been stuffed with turkey.  this one should be good for that...
...not sure i want to go with the corn motiff if i'm keeping it up year round.  i'll post our finished products once they're...well...finished.
