We read the story, "What is Thanksgiving?" by Harriet Ziefert today and then painted a paper turkey. This book is about a mouse family that is teaching young mouse about Thanksgiving, why its celebrated, what we eat, and about giving thanks for our blessings. This is a great book for the kindergarten and under crowd.
I filled a muffin tin with fall colored tempera paint and some small, medium, and large cranberries. I had intended to use the cranberries like marbles and have the kids roll them around.
However, Sassyfras decided to dip her cranberries and leave them on the turkey, which turned out very pretty.
This was a pleasant sensory experience for Juiciness. He liked how the cranberries with paint felt in his hands.
He liked rolling the cranberries to paint the turkey.
