- Construction paper, Red and Green
- Coloured pencils or markers
Help your kid lay their hand down flat on a piece of construction paper and trace around it. Make sure their fingers are spread apart! Then have them cut out a set of twelve hands (one for each month of the year). Or more if you choose!
Tilt each paper hand slightly and arrange in the form of a wreath shape—but don’t glue yet! Have your child practice their handwriting by writing one of the months of the year on each hand, starting with January at the bottom and ending, clockwise, with December.
Below each month, have your child write one thing they feel thankful for in that month of the year. Maybe it’s snow, maybe it’s a birthday, or maybe it’s because the sun was shining. Whatever it is, give your kid props once they’ve written out their reason to be thankful.
