This month we are focusing on being Thankful and ways to show Kindness towards others. To help with this we have crated a Thankful Tree where the leaves are handwritten notes of what we are thankful for.
So to help spread this mindset we started our tree on our Family Diner night so our friends could join with us. I was very happy with how engaged everyone was and the time and thought they put into their leaves.

I saw this post by Frugal Fun For Boys & Girls and I was so excited to try it out. In fact, I invited friends over the same day & made a quick trip to the craft store.
After letting A help pick out items to decorate the house with, we headed back home to get it ready.
It was very easy following the directions for building the house. A was excited to help me measure & draw the lines on the cardboard. Then A spent a lot of time cutting extra pieces of cardboard.
The hot glue was super easy & sturdy for the house. (Much easier than frosting!). Then I added velcro to the house & then to the different decorating items.
A and her friend had a blast decorating their houses. And they even redecorated it a few times during the making process!
