Thanksgiving Story Bracelets

Thanksgiving story bracelets

We've been reading Thanksgiving Day by Anne Rockwell.  It is a great book to teach preschoolers about Thanksgiving and I love the illustrations in the book.

Thanksgiving story bracelet

I'm not sure where this idea started, but Little J made a bracelet in preschool to help him learn and retell the Thanksgiving story.  I wanted to do it with Sassyfras and Juiciness this year so I googled it.  I found the details at My Montessori Journey, you can even download the story! 

Thanksgiving story bracelet for kids

chenille stem
3 brown beads
4 white beads
3 blue beads
1 green bead
1 light green bead
1 yellow bead
1 orange bead
1 red bead

It's been cute to hear them try to remember the story as they touch each bead on their bracelets!

I hand't heard of Thanksgiving bracelets before - what a nice way to remember the story. We read this Thanksgiving book every year - I love holiday stories by Anne Rockwell.

We live in Turkey and so all our Holidays are passed over so I work really hard to encourage tradition and understanding of our American Holidays. This is a great idea, especially like the book. :) also thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting on the circle tree. :) Did you find all 3 birds? ;)

Thanks for sharing
