The kids used a writing template to do their poems.
I am thankful for _____ and ______ .
I'm really thankful for ________.
I'm thankful for ________. (repeat this as many times as you need)
But most of all I'm thankful for ______.
The three older kids wrote this out for themselves which went very well even for I7. J4 dictated his list to me which he was very eager to do.
Then I stalled for a few days because I needed to figure out how I would do it differently. Here are the results and because I love my new little phone and its video capabilities, you get a new video!
I used these Tupperware templates for the leaf shapes. I traced them onto the backing of contact paper and then cut them out to put on the edges of the watercolor paper.
I7 's design- we used tube watercolor's which are always so vibrant.
The finished product- not all the gallery frames are the same size and I didn't cut the paper down ahead of time.
We put the poems in the middle. The original idea had the poem printed on the watercolor paper, but the paper I have is too big for the printer so again we modified.
