Day #8 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving Series is going to focus on Turkeys. There are so many fun things for kids to do with Turkey themes for Thanksgiving! According to History.com, the Pilgrims and Indians most likely had turkey at the first Thanksgiving and so we always think of turkeys around this time of year.
Day #7 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving Series is all about Cranberries. I first got the idea from one of our favorite Five in a Row books….

Day #6 in the 25 Days of Thanksgiving series is going to focus on Pilgrims. Learning about Pilgrims can be very fun for kids and there are a lot of resources out there to help you! I’m going to share with you what I found to be the most useful and beneficial.
With Thanksgiving studies, we tend to mostly focus on the Pilgrims and the First Thanksgiving. For Day #5, I thought we could learn about the history of How Thanksgiving became a National Holiday in the first place.
If you love doing Unit Studies and making Lapbooks with your kids, Day #4 is for you! Thanksgiving Lapbooks & Unit Studies. There are tons of Thanksgiving Lapbooks & Unit Studies out there and you may be surprised at how many of them are actually free and easy to use!
Hi everyone! It’s a few days late, but I thought I’d share our Halloween picture with you. This year we had a Scarecrow, a Football Player, a Cowboy and a Ballerina! We attended our church’s Trunk or Treat event and had great time. Plus, it was pretty nice that I didn’t have to cook dinner that night, the church had hotdogs for everyone. It’s so fun for kids to dress up and get candy! On Halloween night, we were home and the kids were ecstatic to hand out candy to Trick or Treaters who came through our neighborhood.
Day #3 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving Series is all about The Mayflower. This is such an important part of Thanksgiving and everyone knows that boats are so much fun!
To start with, one of our favorite books to learn about The Mayflower is this one:
If You Sailed On The Mayflower in 1620 by Ann McGovern
My kids LOVE this book & never get tired of it!
Day #2 of 25 Days of Thanksgiving is Fun With Fall Leaves. What is more fun in the fall than playing with leaves? There is so much for kids to learn using these simple things that are most of the time just laying around the yard outside. I’m going to share with you some of my favorite things to do with fall leaves.
Hi guys! Day #1 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving is going to focus on Being Thankful.
There are so many ways we can teach our kids how to be thankful. One of my favorites is to create a “Thankful Tree.” I usually just take a piece of posterboard and draw the outline of a tree with no leaves. Then I cut out little leaves with different colored construction paper and have the kids write what/who they are thankful for on the leaves and we glue it onto the branches of the tree. You can make it as simple or fancy as you want. Here are a few links I found on Pinterest to give you some ideas:
