    “Blessings Tree,” Friend, Nov. 2004, 34–35

    Blessings Tree

    Instructions

    1. Remove pages 34–35 from the magazine and mount them on lightweight cardboard. Cut out the leaves and place them in a sack.

    2. In a family home evening, have family members take turns picking a leaf from the sack, telling how the item written is a blessing, and gluing it to the tree. When they pick a blank leaf, have them share a blessing of their choice that they are thankful for. Then write the blessing on the leaf and glue it to the tree. Have the family discuss all these blessings and other things they can thank Heavenly Father for in their prayers.

    3. Hang the finished tree where it will remind your family of their many blessings and remind them to thank Heavenly Father for them.
