Nana and Papa were visiting with us at the beginning of the week, so we just enjoyed spending time with them.  The rest of the week was spent learning about Thanksgiving, what it means to be thankful, and turkeys (lots of turkeys!)

I made a feather rubbing plate for the kids to make the turkey here.

All the kids were home from school on Veterans Day and I made them a "Thankful Breakfast"They also helped me make cocoa rice krispie turkey treats that day.

Features from last week's party!
Little Wonders' Days

Telling Time with Peter Pan & Friends - free game

Living Life Intentionally shared some fun learning activities that went along with the kids' current interests...their Halloween costumes!  I love linking learning into what interests my kids at the moment.


Lessons Learnt Journal made a fun shaving cream car wash for her kids to explore with.  It involved lots of sensory, color mixing, fine motor, and just good old fun.

Pinterest - Kids' Thanksgiving Activities

Deb at Living Montessori Now rounded up several great ideas and activities to teach children about gratitude. 

Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational shared a great tutorial on how to make a "twist a letter" game using a PVC pipe.

Thank you to everyone that linked up and shared their great ideas!
