Tons of Thanksgiving Ideas

Thanksgiving fun!

I use this video to introduce the kids to our Thanksgiving theme for the week.
Play-dough Turkey's
Counting Feathers

All my kids are on different levels, so I modified it to match their needs.
Here are some samples:

Making patterns

I had them cut their own squares/rectangles and paste them to make a pattern. We also practiced using a tape dispenser to tape their feather on their "Indian head band"
Indian corn
Thanksgiving art activity indian corn
 For the paint I just added a little bit of brown to each of the colors I wanted to use. I used purple, red, beige, and yellow, all with a tint of brown.

We compared and discussed the differences between Indian Corn and the traditional corn on the cob they eat at home. This is also a great FINE MOTOR SKILL ACTIVITY.
