Here’s a fun little art project to get ready for Thanksgiving. I wanted something new this year to use on Thanksgiving to have all the guests write down what they are grateful for. Last year, I made these cute grateful pennant flags that were a hit. But this year, I thought, why not make something that I wouldn’t mind hanging on the wall all year long? So here it is – a watercolor poster to have your friends and family write on. It doesn’t take any artistic skill and you can borrow your kiddo’s watercolor set to do it!

1. Using a ruler, pencil in lines across your watercolor paper as guides for where your row of circles will go.

2. Start painting your circles. They don’t have to be perfect, just paint away!

3. Once paint has dried, erase the pencil guidelines.

4. Now let your guests add what they are grateful for.
