Kids can make blessing boxes to show what they are thankful for on Thanksgiving Day.

By Amanda Formaro

What You Need:

  • Empty milk cartons
  • Brown construction paper
  • Magic markers
  • Glue
  • Scissors

What You Do:

  1. Have students save their milk cartons from lunch.
  2. Wash the milk cartons and let them dry overnight.
  3. Cover the milk carton with brown paper, leaving the top open.
  4. Have students trace their hands onto construction paper.
  5. Cut out the hand shapes to create turkey tails to attach to the back of the box.
  6. On the front of the box print the child’s name and the word blessing box underneath. (ex. Jessica’s Blessing Box.)
  7. Each day encourage the children to print their blessings on a small strip of paper and put it into their box.
  8. When complete, students can take the project home and share their blessings with their families on Thanksgiving.
