Gratitude Banner

Last year I did the Facebook thing where you list one thing that your thankful for every day.  I liked that it made me think about what I’m grateful for and I wanted to try something similar with Raptor.  I found some foam leaves at Michael’s that were perfect.  Every day Raptor comes up with one thing that she’s grateful for and I write it on the leaf for her.  Then I staple it to a ribbon that I have strung across her play house.  Initially, I had intended for it to be a banner across the archway separating out living and dining rooms (in this spot) but I need to buy a longer ribbon.  lol.

leavesThe dark glittery leaves are harder to write on, but since she’s not reading yet I don’t think it  matters so much.  The bigger point I was trying to make was for her to think of something every day.  :)
