Happy Thanksgiving -- Easy Craft and Free Printables!

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a time where family and friends gather and are thankful for the many things we have. It is a time where I also think about the history of the United States and pray that we can treat each other better in the future. Above is a simple paper plate craft that Hazel made at Lakeshore Learning this past weekend. It is meant to be a centerpiece, but ours does not stand up very well. I think maybe a toilet paper roll instead of the rolled up brown paper would be better. However it is really cute and I loved all the things she is thankful for this year! You can download instructions on their website for this craft and all the free crafts for kids. 

This year I have many things to be thankful for: my family, my health, my new job, my house, my friends, and of course you, my readers. I thought I would give you a small token of my thanks with two free printables of sayings I absolutely love. These printables are for private use and cannot be used to earn money. If you would like to share them, please refer them back to this post. I made these using My Memories Software.  If you are interested in purchasing your own My Memories, I would love if you used my affiliate code: STMMMS83543. It won't cost you anything, but they will give me a little bit.
The first printable is "There is always something to be thankful for." You can get your own png of it here

The second is "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful." You can get your own png of it here.

If you are celebrating Thanksgiving I hope you have a very happy and healthy one!! If you are not, I hope you can find some time today to think about what you are thankful for!! Happy Thanksgiving!!
