DIY Bulletin Board Set - "Tree of Thanks"
I purchased this tree for my little girls teacher's Fall themed bulletin board. The size was great for the price. I added a few real branches to the tree and made the trunk more rounded rather than sticking it straight to the bulletin board. It gave it more of a 3D look. And I love that the kiddos got to write what they were thankful for on the leaves. Super sweet!

If I had known...
If I had known how much I was going to enjoy this I would have taken it to be laminated so that it could have been used for many years to come. Instead, I'll order another for future use :)
Both sides of the family converge on our home for Thanksgiving so I made additional leaves so everyone (all 40!) will be able to share a word of thanks.
I'm really anxious to see what it looks like when complete.

My young Bible class students love putting the leaves on the tree.
When the kids come into the classroom the first thing they want to do is add leaves. For the youngest in the class I have to write what he's thankful for. The others can write on the leaves themselves. It states for ages 5 and up but the 4 yr old in the class loves it. I covered my tables and bulletin board in orange table covers and then put the tree on the bulletin board. Makes the room look like Fall.

Not a good deal
I purchased this product to use in a preschool classroom. I was really disappointed by the ultra-thin paper used to make the leaves and the "cardstock" used for the tree that was only a little thicker than a normal sheet of paper. The tree was wrapped around a piece of cardboard that caused wrinkles in the paper and several branches were torn when I opened it. Very disappointed!

Nice for student names
I bought this tree and had my students put their names or initials on them. It turned out really nice.

The tree was nice. I had it laminated for future use. The leaves were limited, but I kept the pattern to make more leaves with more paper. The kids in my scouts loved it.

We used these in our office for employees to write down things they are thankful for. Everyone loved them. Just note the size of the tree as they are kind of small. Love the trees to be bigger!

I bought this along with additional bulletin board materials--approximately 10 different board supplies. This by far was the worst value. Thin paper for the leaves and the tree was very difficult to put up.
I would either make my own tree next time.

Nice Thanksgiving Activity
I needed to keep my niece and nephew busy this holiday, so ordered a few items from Oriental Trading. This was a great item, as it got all the family members involved (my niece asked each what they were thankful for and wrote it on the leaf). They stayed busy and out of trouble!
