What you will need:
Leaf stencil/template (I got mine here)
Colored construction paper (Two to three different colors will do)
Embroidery hoop (12 or 14-inch hoop is best)
Yarn (one or two colors)Begin by wrapping the yarn around the embroidery hoop from top to bottom, left to right, until you have created a nice looking web. Depending on your child’s age, they may be able to help with this step. My preschooler lent me a hand just fine! Cut & tie the yarn off.
Use the leaves stencil or template and trace the leaves onto your colored construction paper. Your children will love this part (just make sure to use kid-friendly scissors!).
Now it is time for your children to do some thinking. Ask your child to name a few things in their life that they are thankful for, and help them write one on each leaf. It is always fun to get a peak into their little brains! For example, my son named:
-Heart (Possibly referring to “love”? Or maybe his healthy heart from his Cheerio intake?😛)
