I am thankful for Thanksgiving!

Here is a quick little update on our Thanksgiving activities! I don't know about y'all, but this year I did not get everything in that I would of liked to. I did find though that my kids have a better understanding about WHY we celebrate Thanksgiving compared to last year, so I consider it a small victory!
We made these cute Mayflower fact books thanks to Cara Carroll:

I am happy to say they know what the Mayflower is and when it sailed!

After this, we did cute Indians and discussed how they helped the Pilgrims. I got these from Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten. We also did Pilgrims and compared and contrasted our lives with Pilgrim lives. Those are from the lovely Cara!

AND last, we made our tie-dye turkeys! So fun, and they turned out cute. We gave our turkeys picket signs saying we would eat something else. I am pretty sure this is a lovely Deanna Jump idea!



WHEW! Seriously what happenned to the year already?! Cannot believe it is time for holiday activities when we get back!
I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving! I am ready for some family time in Dallas!
