Thankful Wreath

This thankful wreath is an easy craft that will help your kids explore the reason for the season - giving thanks! School-age children will find it is fun and easy to make this wreath. 

 This is a great classroom project!

What you will need to make a Thankful Wreath...

  • various colors of construction paper
  • light card (for printing out the template)
  • pencil
  • permanent marker
  • paper plate (more likely to be plastic these days...)
  • glue stick
  • paper scissors


Gather all of your materials together. Trace around the leaf templates on your pieces of coloured paper and cut out your leaves.

Cut out the top half of your disposable dinner plate and write "I am thankful for" on the bottom half using a permanent marker. Have the kids write things on their leaves that they are thankful for.

Apply glue to the back of your leaves using a glue stick and place your leaves around the edges of your dinner plate wreath.
