HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I'll be taking a break for the remainder of this week so just wanted to take a minute to wish you all a HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

If you're looking for any last minute crafts, here are a few I found that are kinda fun (and different to me at any rate):

Finger Puppet Pilgrims. (With toilet paper rolls, of course!)


Thanksgiving Lacing Activity Cards.

Thanksgiving mazes (that you can print off when you are cooking and the kids are looking for something to do).

A Turkey Hunt Game (copied and pasted from the link given):

Turkey Hunt! Hunt quietly, you don't want to scare the turkeys...Prepare for the game by drawing or pasting turkey pictures on a dozen or so index cards - stickers will work as well.To play, everyone leaves the room except the leader. The leader hides the cards around the room. Hunters return and begin the hunt. As each turkey is found, it is brought back to the leader who corrals them in a separate pile for each hunter. When all the turkeys have been found, the hunter with the most turkeys is the winner and becomes the leader for the next round. Tip:Let your children make the cards before the Holiday. They'll find lots of magazine pictures and can color some as well!

And, of course, if you are looking for a book, might I recommend An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving, by Louisa May Alcott. You can click on the title to read my review of it over at Reading to Know. It would make an excellent and very fun read aloud for kids ages 5 and up, I would think.

However, you are choosing to celebrate the day, and whoever you are spending it with - I hope you have a marvelous time!

  2. Hi! Just found your blog via your fantastic fiction post at Playing By the Book! I love what you are doing--I'm doing something similar with my almost 3 year old daughter. Glad I found another book blog!

  3. I wanted to let you know that I made the paper pilgrims and they were, sadly, not quite as cute as yours. Will try again next year though. Gotta improve my technique!
