November Crafts 'n Snacks - Thanksgiving Dinner
And November means Thanksgiving dinner! And Thanksgiving dinner means turkey, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, pumpkin pie....I mean mmmmmm!!!!! How could Thanksgiving dinner not be the focus of the November Crafts 'n Snacks?!
The craft this month will allow your child to create their own plate for Thanksgiving dinner. They will get to choose from turkey drumsticks, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, bread rolls, and pumpkin pie! The download includes the printouts for each food. They can color in the food they want to eat, and then glue it down to a paper plate. Dinner is served!
After deciding just how much they want to eat of each delicious food, they will complete the "Best Thanksgiving Dinner" page (also included in download), filling in how many parts they have to their Thanksgiving dinner.
The "snack" portion of this month's freebie is one of my favorite fall desserts....sticky caramel pumpkin cake! So moist and yummy, drizzled with caramel, and featuring that beloved pumpkin flavor!
There are also a lot of really fun Thanksgiving stories you can read with your children as you prepare for Thanksgiving dinner this month! Check some of these out:
“A Turkey for Thanksgiving” by Eve Bunting - Mr. and Mrs. Moose are eager to have all their animal friends over for Thanksgiving dinner. But one friend is missing...Turkey!

“A Plump and Perky Turkey” by Teresa Bateman - The Squawk Valley turkeys are getting smarter. There will be no more jumping into pots at Thanksgiving for them.
