Things Blaze is Thankful for

The theme of this week's "Unplugged Challenge" was "THANKFUL", so we used the word "thankful" to make a poster with an acrostic poem of the things Blaze is thankful for. An acrostic poem uses each letter from the word described by the poem to start a word or line of the poem.
I wrote the word thankful on a piece of plain white watercolor paper and then Blaze brainstormed things he was thankful for that started with those letters. For the sake of correct spelling, I wrote the words out on a piece of scrap paper and he copied them onto the poster. Then we mounted the white paper on a large piece of construction paper and Blaze decorated it with watercolor paints and pressed Fall leaves.


In case the words are not all that clear in the picture, it says:

Hot Chocolate
Night sky
Lake Alice

What a wonderful list of things to be thankful for. And it's presented in such a lovely way too.

My little one said "chocolate milk" I am sensing a common theme here! LOL!

what a simple but beautiful idea.. my kids always bring home acrostic poems on mothers day and fathers day.. they can get tricky sometimes :)

That's a great idea. I'm storing it away for when my boys get older.
