Kindess Tree

I know I've posted in the past about the Kindness tree that K and I were making.  We first water colored paper in fall leaf colors.  I then cut out 27 maple leaves from the paper.  Then I put a random act of kindness on each leaf.  some examples are:
hold the door open for someone
draw someone a picture
sing someone a song
leave some quarters in a public place
Then I laminated all the leaves and put strings in them to hang them.  On Nov. 1st we hung them all over our ficus tree.  Each day (when we haven't been traveling or busy with visiting family/friends we've picked a leaf and done what it says for the day.  My original plan was to have it as a count down to thanksgiving, but in the end I decided we'd just finish the tree when we finished it.  So far it has been a lot of fun.  K surprised his great grandmas one day by calling them each and singing to them.  He spent one day running around the house turing off lights (to save the earth).  :)
