I bought these trees for my kids' classrooms to help decorate their Thanksgiving tables at home. They were so easy and so great when completed!! I highly recommend this product! ; )

I am the craft teacher for 1st through 6th grade. I purchased this craft for the children to do at Thanksgiving. THe children were excited and enjoyed the craft. Many parents told me it was beautiful and appreciated. The tree held up well and so did the leaves. The children wrote on it with permanent markers and we used glue dots to attach the leaves to the tree. Excellent purchase, will definitely buy again.

Excellent Thanksgiving Craft
These are very colorful trees. I use them at Thanksgiving for the Pre-K class in my church. We ask the children what they are thankful for, and then write one thing on each leaf. I hot glue the leaves onto the trees prior to the class, since glue would probably be messy with this age group. I have ordered them for the last few years.

Keep in mind that you will need to supply markers and glue! I was a little surprised that the foam wasn't sticky, but all in all the kids had fun writing what they were thankful for and will be a great Thanksgiving decoration. The cutouts are nice, overall very happy with the product.

Neat but you need glue! It said peel and stick but it doesn't!
I ordered several of these the price was a little high. They are really pretty and I used them at a community event for families. Thank goodness my husband was a phone call away because the instruction said peel and stick the leaves to the tree, but there was no leaves that peeled and stick! I had to call my husband to bring glue! Then the glue didn't want to stick cause the children and adults making them were in a hurry to visit other booths so the leaves weren't sticking. Very disappointed in that way but I did get a lot of positive comments on how pretty they were.

Some things you need to know
I purchased this project after reading the reviews so I knew it wasn't perfect. First, the leaves have no sticky on them. We used glue dots and within 20 minutes the leaves were falling off. What did work however was stapling the leaves on and you can barely see them.
What was so good about this project was having my 5 and 4 yr old grand daughters thinking about what they were thankful for, what thankful meant, and seeing their blessings. The 5 yr old told me and I wrote the words for her to copy onto the leaves. The 4 yr old drew pictures on her leaves showing what she was thankful for. It was a wonderful time. Im.also taking this project t to assisted living and helping them each do a tree.

Tree of Thanks
The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because it said you can peel and stick the leaves on and you can't. There is no sticky stuff on the back of the leaves. You have to glue them on there. I had to use a hot glue gun. But the tree itself is really cute and I love it. Just wish that it did have sticky stuff on the back of the leaves to make it easier for little kids.

A real keepsake for Thanksgiving
For the past 7-8 years I have purchased this item for all my second graders. They really enjoy this activity and my parents love having a stand-up tree of thanks to display for Thanksgiving.
I even have brothers, sisters, and other students asking if they can put a tree together for themselves.

A new Thanksgiving Tradition!!
My three grandsons (3, 5, and 7) loved this craft, although the 3 and 5 year olds needed help. This will be a Thanksgiving tradition -- great family craft.
