Thanksgiving is a perfect opportunity to come together and celebrate the value of family and friends; we all gather and share a meal around a big table.

Bring in a few thin sticks from outside and have the kids write what they are thankful for on paper cutout leaves. Just staple the ‘leaves’ onto the sticks, place the sticks in an appropriate vase, and you’ll have the perfect fall centerpiece!
