Thankful Tree Printables

Now on to our Thankful Trees! I love this time of year. Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to celebrate right before Christmas. A holiday specifically to show appreciate, gratitude and thankfulness. Sometimes children don’t know how to behave or respond to something unless you put it right in front of their face. That’s why Thanksgiving is so great. It is a perfect day to learn how and why to be thankful. Even though historically there are some gaps and misinformation in the holiday, it is still a great holiday that represents giving and thanks.

2 Thankful Tree Thanksgiving Printables

We have 2 different versions of a Thankful Tree:

1. Thankful Tree Worksheet

thankful tree fill the leaves with things you're thankful for

Our first is more of a worksheet style activity. No cutting and pasting. I wanted to do a craft that is one piece of paper, without including the mess that comes with scissors and glue. Don’t get me wrong I love cut and paste activities but sometimes you may need or want a simpler activity. One that requires very little materials.

With this activity, being a coloring worksheet, all you really need are crayons, colored pencils or markers.

Our Thankful Tree Worksheet is 1-page and features a sturdy tree with multiple branches holding up various different kinds of leaves. Color the tree with your favorite colors and then fill in each leaf with something you’re thankful for. It could be a person, an item or even something you are thankful you are able to do (example: I am thankful for my sister. I am thankful I am can take gymnastics classes).

If the children are too young to tackle on their own break the classroom up into small groups and make one tree for each small team.

Once your children or students are done with this activity hang them on the fridge or around the classroom. Cut it out to make it more of a thanksgiving decor item. Hang it on the classroom bulletin board to share your grateful hearts!

A great activity for kids of all ages, even the older kids!

2. Thankful Tree Cut and Paste Activity

This next Thankful tree craft is a fun cut and paste activity for kids! It’s a 2 page craft consisting of the tree trunk and 10 leaves to color, cut and put the tree together.

How do you use the Thankful Tree Craft?

The instructions are simple:

  • Color the tree and leaves.
  • Write the items you’re thankful for on each leave.
  • Write your name on the tree trunk. A great idea when used as a classroom activity.
  • Practice your fine motor skills and cut out the tree trunk and leaves.
  • Use a glue stick and paste the leaves on the tree branches.

To make the tree sturdier, feel free to paste on another sheet of paper or even a poster board.

Want to make this craft last? Laminate the Thankful Tree Printable

Color the tree and leaves and then laminate both sheets of this activity (before cutting out). Use a dry erase marker (expo marker) to write the things you are thankful for. This is a great idea if you want to use the same tree for multiple people or if you want to make the activity last.

I don’t use anything fancy, just a simple and easy laminator. This is the laminator I use and recommend, you literally just turn it on, it heats up, and you’re ready to start laminating anything  or everything!

I’m also a big fan of the self-sealing laminating pouches! They are super easy! You literally just place your printable in a letter size pouch, run it through the laminator and you have a sealed and long-lasting item!

This Thanksgiving activity comes with the below 2 pages:

1) The tree piece of this craft resembles a hand. I visualized children holding the things they’re thankful for in their hands. So, it worked really well when I decided to go this route with the tree.

2) This second page consists of 10 blank leaves. The lines are straight and uncomplicated. I wanted the leaves to be a basic shape so they would be easier to cut for the little ones.

On each leave write something you are thankful for! Color the entire page in festive fall colors and then hang it as Thanksgiving Decoration! Another idea is to give it to a family member or friend to show thanks!
