Paper Chains for the Holidays

I was reading someone's blog and she was talking about how they made a paper chain to count down the holidays with. I was struck with an idea of my own that is a little twist on the paper chain decoration thing. Every day leading up to Thanksgiving- start around the first day of school- you have the family come up with one thing they are thankful for. You write that item on a paper strip and attach it to your paper chain. By Thanksgiving you have a nice long chain that you can use to decorate for Christmas and you have also spent the couple of months leading up to Thanksgiving focusing on everything you are thankful for.

That's an awesome idea! I'm going to remember this one.
