Holiday season always brings around those teacher directed crafts. We made a couple today that will be used as decorations for our program . I hope you enjoy that type of thing. I did try to let the kids do as much of the ” work ” as possible so it is authentic and a real piece of ” art ” from your child.
First we made small turkeys that will be on headbands during the Thanksgiving Feast as we sing. SUPER CUTE ! The kids cut out the feathers and glued them on. I didnt even give them lines to go by. We just talked about what a feather looks like with a pointy end and they went at it. Because of that freedom they all look unique! We will finish up the headbands tomorrow. See… a few ( or maybe a couple ) years ago we made our headbands the day OF the feast and lets just say that colored glue running down a child’s face can be quiet distracting as they sing ” Five Fat Turkeys.”
Remember the footprints from yesterday. Today we added feathers. These cute turkeys will be turned into a place mat for your child’s lunch and hopefully a keep sake for you.
Sweet Sweet Turkey. Lets sort some skittles by color on turkey feathers.
This morning we watched a little bit of Pocohontas .
It was just a fun activity after we read a non-fiction book about pilgrims and indians .
Some facts the kids might know if you ask.
1. What did the Indians help the pilgrims plant ?
2. Did the children go to school ?
3 . How did the women pilgrim cook ?
4. What was the name of the boat the pilgrims came to America on ?
