We have been focusing on Giving Thanks this week since it is Thanksgiving week.
Funshine Express has given us some great crafts to help us incorporate Thanksgiving into our class time.
Our first craft was to make a Thanksgiving wreath. While we created it we talked about things that we are thankful for and people who help us in our lives.
Here is an example of our wreath…
My youngest wanted to do her turkey hand all by herself! After she was done tracing/drawing it she exclaimed “It’s a Sponge Bob turkey!”
Today we made thankful treat bags and filled them with some candy. We used this craft activity to talk about who in the community we were thankful for. We choose the mail lady to deliver one of our treats too.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to teach children about what we can do to help others, and to be thankful for those around us that help us in so many ways.
