Happy Thanksgiving From Our Family To Yours!
This Thanksgiving I created a few fun printables for us to do that you can use as a break from school, as an add-on for the little ones' schooling, or just as a fun activity to do together! I hope you enjoy them and have a Happy Thanksgiving! I'm very thankful for you.
First, we made Turkeys because that is a must! You can download the printable to cut out your turkey head and glue it onto a cardboard paper roll. Then, use your imagination on how to create a fun turkey plume. We painted coffee filters here but you could use anything, including real feathers.
Next, I created a printable playdough mat, which you can download and use as base for counting kernels of popcorn. We used yellow playdough to make the cobs and then the kids had fun pressing popcorn kernels into them. We also talked about how the Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to grow corn. There is a lot of fun information on that if you want to add in more learning.
Finally we had fun digging up a recipe that my mom makes every holiday, and we made it with the kids. We wrote it down on our printable so that we can keep it and pull it out whenever the mood should strike for Grandma Joanie's Yorkshire Pudding. Cooking with the kids is always more work, but so worth the joy they have seeing something come out of the oven that they helped to make.
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
