Thanksgiving Paper Chain Decoration

A simple Thanksgiving decoration that lets you show off all you are thankful for.

Materials Needed:

  • Construction Paper
  • Glue or Tape
  • Marker or Pen

Instructions:
This is a great group activity!

Cut many 2 inch by 8 inch strips out of construction paper (I usually use Autumn colors such as red, orange, yellow, brown). Have everyone finish this statement on a construction paper strip: "I am thankful for ...". Try to think of many things you are thankful for and write on as many strips as possible.

Once all the writing is done, make a paper chain using the strips! Start by forming one of the strips into a circle and gluing or taping the short ends together. Make sure the writing side is out! Take a second strip and stick it through the center of the first circle you made, and tape or glue the two short ends together. Continue this until you have used all your strips.

This makes a fun Thanksgiving decoration!
