Thanksgiving Crafts


The first Thanksgiving was a day to be thankful, a day of feasting and games shared with the Indians. The Pilgrims were thankful for a good harvest, good health, and to the Indians for teaching them how to survive in their new surroundings. Thanksgiving is much the same today. A family time for sharing and feasting. A day to be thankful.

Talk about ways you and your children feel thankful. Discuss ways people express their thankfulness -- a hug, a kind word, a small gift.
