It was craft day today in the speech room. We got out the crayons and scissors and made a cutesie little Thanksgiving speech tree. It came out awesome, if I may say so myself. I showed it to our secretary, and she even wanted to set out in the front office to give our little speechies some recognition. 🙂
Here is a fun tutorial on how to make one of your own. You may have seen the “thankful trees” around the internet. If not, check out this one or this one. Well, I thought it’d be fun to make one speech and language style!
It turned out super cute, but I can’t believe I forgot to take a picture of the final product! Ugh! I’ll post an update tomorrow with the final picture. 🙂
**Update! Here is a pic of the final product!
To make the tree you’ll need:
- a clay or plastic pot
- some branches (I just grabbed mine off of a tree in my back yard)
- a piece of foam small enough to fit inside the pot
- some tissue or paper of some sort (I used packing paper)
