Tree of Thanksgiving

This is the season to count our blessings and take a moment to think about what we are grateful for. Here’s an activity to help us do it. Find a branch, secure it in a vase, and use this template to make leaves out of colorful paper. Have everyone write one thing they are thankful for and hang the leaf on the branch.

Snowflakes Young Children Can Make for Sandy Hook

Although young children don’t benefit knowing the details of Sandy Hook, they can still be involved in acts of kindness.  Making snowflakes to create a winter wonderland is a simple gesture that will welcome Sandy Hook children to their new school.   Deadline is Jan. 12.  Mail snowflakes to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103, Hamden, CT 06514.
