Thanksgiving Fun!

Are you looking for some Thanksgiving ideas for this week? I found a free download called Thanksgiving Helper at www.currclick.com There are also some free downloads for Thanksgiving at www.abcteach.com as well as www.enchantedlearning.com I also enjoy finding craft ideas at www.crayola.com

Some of my favorite memories from childhood Thanksgivings include things like making an outline of my hand, and then adding a beak to the thumb and bird feet underneath, then coloring the whole thing to look like a turkey. Did any of you ever do that?

How many of you did a play of the first Thanksgiving? I was the oldest child and my younger brothers got bossed into being a pilgrim or indian or whatever big sister told them to do. We made great hats out of construction paper! (I used to think you could make anything out of construction paper, crayons and tape...oh wait, maybe I still think that!)

Did any of you ever make a paper chain where each link had something written on it that you were thankful for? That was fun too. Then there was the red and green paper chain with 25 links, one to tear off each day in December...but I am getting ahead of myself!

What fun things did you do as a child or do you do with your own kids for Thanksgiving. Add a coment and tell us all about it. And remember, be thankful!

P.S. If you want to check out some free home school curriculum, www.currclick.com has a special this Friday (along with everyone else!) They are offering some things free that day. The good thing is, you won't have to go out in the cold at 4:30am to look. Happy Thanksgiving!
