For our November/Thanksgiving Activity we divided the group between Indians and Pilgrims. The Indians got to make their own headbands out of strands of thin cardboard paper and feathers and the Pilgrims made necklines with a very pretty fabric I found at Hobby Lobby. I precut it for them so all they had to do was weave a piece of yarn through to tighten up the sides. Then they performed a play reenacting the first Thanksgiving dinner. I was very impressed that many of them knew their history quite well including the name of those famous personages like Squanto,etc. The play I had found previously and thought to be very age appropriate, as well as entertaining and educational.
We closed the evening by decorating cupcakes as turkeys using candy corn and gumdrop candy.
Good Times for sure!
