Thanksgiving Paper Chain Craft

Here’s a fun and easy craft you can do with your kids or students to help them focus on the reason for the season!  Cupcakes, Hobbs, and I took turns coming up with things we’re thankful for, things we want to thank God for.  It was a great teaching tool for Cupcakes!

It was also a great craft for practicing use of scissors and glue.  I cut some strips and then I let Cupcakes cut some “strips”:

Cupcakes’ “quasadilla”

Then, as a family, we all talked about what we were grateful for and wrote everything down.  Some of Cupcakes’ included: “her turtle that Daddy is going to fix, her books, all our phones, and this paper chain”.  Hahaha cutest!

She helped me by putting glue on the ends, putting the strips through the rest of the chain and sticking it together.  Then we hung the chain above our front door.  Now we can pray in thanksgiving for all our paper chain items.
