A fun wreath kids can make for fall

Here is a terrific Kids Craft Thanksgiving Wreath for Fall and the Thanksgiving season.

Easy and quick to hold little ones attention, but older kids can make it as decorative at they would like.

Your family could easily make an extra to take to a local retirement/care center, even if you don’t know anyone there, they would surely appreciate some cheer and your thoughtfulness.  This would be a great time to talk, as a family, of blessings to be grateful for.

Give each child (and everyone if family activity) an empty toilet paper roll, a foam brush, and a bit of washable paints on a paper plate and let them go to work.
Have fun together while the paint dries (about 30 minutes or so), play a game, decorate cookies, whatever!

When the paint is dry, poke holes in the toilet paper roll so that holes are across from each other on the roll.Now stick the pipe cleaner through a hole on one side of the toilet paper roll then through the other hole directly across from it on the other side.

Do as many pipe cleaners as there are holes to make the ‘arms’.
