Judy’s Thanksgiving Toolkit

Updated: Nov 22, 2019

November is Native American Heritage Month, which coincides with Thanksgiving. It is a time to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and contributions of Native Americans. This time of feasting is an opportunity to learn all about the sources of our food -- the land and the sea.

We bring all this to life in our preschool, parent/child music and twos programs with these books, songs and crafts. Now you can celebrate and explore the holiday with your kids at home!


Art Projects:

1) Turkey in the Straw: Trace the child’s hand on white paper. Let the child paint it with

watercolors, using any combination of colors. Draw an eye or add an eye sticker, and orange cut out beak, and a red wattle. Cut a sheet of yellow construction paper in half. Cut ½ into tiny strips for the straw. Let the child glue the strips to the other half of the yellow paper in a pile, a nest, or in a pattern of the child’s own creation. Glue the turkey to the straw.
