A Month for Thanks and Giving

We like to focus each November on Thanks and Giving ... one of our traditions is our Thankful Tree. Each school day the kids and I write out something we are thankful for and hang it on our Thankful Tree. It is so nice on Thanksgiving to read out loud what everyone is thankful for.

Another tradition is celebrating Thanksgiving with our homeschool friends by packing Operation Christmas Child boxes. It is something we look forward to every year. Today was our party and after packing boxes the kids enjoyed craft projects, pizza, and lots of playtime with friends.

This year Isa & I are filling a shoe box. My hubby mentioned that the box we were using was not "standard size". So now we have two standard size and is able to fill 2 boxes this year.
Now what is in that Thanksgiving mix in the first picture? I love that idea.
