For Thanksgiving we decided to add some leaves to my little necklace tree.
The girls painted some packing paper (scrounged from the local health food store) with autumn watercolors. After it was dry, we cut out simple leaf shapes and, using a needle, strung each of them with a bit of thread.
Then we put them all out in a basket for everyone to write on.
This is one of my favorites.
It’s from my father-in-law who is grateful for short grandkids and tall sons. I'm guessing that he was probably just being a goof, but I thought it was rather poetic.
