There are several cute ways to do this. When I was a child mom set out strips of colored paper for my brothers and me to use. After writing something on the paper we made a long chain, each strip of paper becoming one link. Each day we'd add a few more links to the chain, and by Thanksgiving it was quite long! I've also heard of cutting paper leaves out of colored paper (just fold a piece of paper in half and cut a leaf shape with a zig-zag pair of scissors) and writing things you are thankful for on those. I saw a collection of those leaves once that was kept in a bowl, and it made a pretty fall decoration. Remember the reason for the holidays, and be Thankful!!!
