My plan is to keep Thanksgiving simple this year. I won’t be introducing Pilgrims or a history of the United States of America. We will save those lessons until Logan is at least three. ha!
We’re pretty much focusing on two things.
1. Thanksgiving is a time to tell God thank you.
2. Thanksgiving is a time to eat some turkey.
I admit, I chose #2 because turkeys make some pretty cute little turkey crafts!
This week we read Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland . This book actually hit on both of our “themes”. After reading this book we made a cute turkey craft!
Ps. If you DO want to learn about Pilgrims this Thanksgiving, check out my friend Kate’s blog. She took a visit to Plymouth plantation and has a great list of Pilgrim related books in her post!
