Hello all! This post is going to be pretty short and SWEET, because I am still trying to recover from the Holiday. BUT, I didn't want to be late, in case anyone was actually more on top of things than I was this month.
Did YOU remember to do a Symfully Sweet project this month?
It just wasn't done as early as I had intended it to be.
The original plan was for my project to start at the beginning of November, and then extend until Thanksgiving day. THAT did NOT happen.
But I got it done!
Wanna know what I came up with?
It all started with a BIG idea, and a little vinyl...
A simple tree and the words "I am thankful for..." was to be the canvas for our family project.
NEXT, a little construction paper, a template, and some sweet treats combined to help our bare tree flourish...
4 different colors of leaves, with coordinating candies attached.
To take a moment, and express the thing(s) you're thankful for. When you thought of something to be thannkful for, you could pick a leaf out of the bowl, write or draw it on the leaf, take your little treat, and then...
we took the time to hang our "blessings" on our "THANKFUL TREE".
Sissy started off thankful for pets.
Bug was more specific, and named Sadie (our Golden Retriever) by name.
Bubble turned on the charm, and said "Parents"
While Boo scribbled a few lines on a leaf, and said "yummy". I'm lying to myself, and saying that she meant..."Mommy".
Contrary to the original plan, we did not start the "grateful tree" until Thanksgiving Day morning. However, in less than 24 hours, our tree went from completely bare, to this...
A little post Halloween sugar shock never hurt anyone. Especially when it involved teaching my children to count their blessings.
I think we've found a new family tradition!
SO, now it's YOUR turn! What did you come up with this month, that utilized Hershey's Miniatures?
Write 'em up, Link 'em up, and let the judging begin!
