Last year I wrote this post about Thanksgiving crafts. Here are a few more Thanksgiving ideas that I either do in my class or would like to!
There is a great set of November printables at abcschoolhouse.
You could use one of the printable turkeys for a Turkey Glyph. This is one of my favorite activities to do with my kids. It really makes them learn to listen to directions.
This is the glyph that I use:
Turkey Glyph students follow these directions to color their turkey:
Boys orange beak, girls; yellow beak
Yellow feet has siblings; Red feet does not have siblings
Body: like to eat turkey, brown; doesn’t like it, black
Color the turkey’s eyes the color of your eyes.
Feathers: 4 year old- red and orange; 5 year old red and yellow
Isn’t this a cute turkey hat?
Here’s a cute little turkey from Family Fun.
We always make Indian Headdress in my class. We pattern triangles on a long thin sheet of paper (like a sentence strip), fit it to the child’s head and staple and then attach feathers (I cut out feather shapes) to the back. These always turn out so cute and are a good way to practice patterning.
We also make Indian Corn. I have the kids paint the corn shape with dots of paint using a q-tip. Then we add green paper “husks.”
It looks a lot like the one above.
There are some cute File Folder games at preschoolprintables:
I’ve never tried these, but they sure are cute.
