Made Urban Giving Thanks Garland

By Erin Mooney

Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year as I’m sure it is for many people. Although I didn’t realize it when I was younger, the best memories are of the times I was able to share with friends and family, not the gifts I received. It’s easy for kids to get wrapped up in what they want from Santa and miss the real meaning of Christmas, so here’s a fun DIY to get them thinking about what they’re thankful for, other than toys.

STEP 1

Print off a few sheets of our pdf and have the kids cut out the “Today I’m thankful for” hearts, stars and mittens.

STEP 2

Let the kids choose their holiday colors and have them paint a clothespin for each cut out, using craft paint. Allow them to dry.

STEP 3

Using ribbon, twine or string, cut a piece long enough to fit your cut outs and tie a knot or loop on each end. This will give you a way to anchor or hang the garland.

STEP 4

Get creative and decorate the ends of the rope. You can use bows, greenery, spray painted pinecones or any other Christmas decoration you love.

STEP 5

Hang your garland and arrange the cut outs along it using the clothespins. Take one down each day and have the kids fill in what they appreciate beneath “Today I’m thankful for”. It can be as simple as the family pet or building a snowman with mom and dad.

This is a great way to fit in a little family time each day and start a meaningful conversation. Be sure mom and dad participate too! As adults we have a tendency to get a little stressed out during the holidays and taking a few minutes to think about what we appreciate is a great stress reliever.

Happy Holidays everyone!
