How in the world is it that Thanksgiving is next week?
I feel like the month of November has flown by.
And with there only being a week left of "fall activities" I'm bound and determined to fit them all in!
Here's what I've yet to check off my list...
*raking up a big pile of leaves for the babes to jump in
*make caramel apples
*bake an apple pie
I'd say that it's very doable to complete all three by next Thursday!
Have you completed all your fall to-do's?
Because let's face it... once Thanksgiving Thursday ends it's full swing Christmas and winter!
I've been teaching the kids about Thanksgiving this past week.
It's been fun this year because they're beginning to ask questions :)
I loved doing the following craft with them because there was SO much fun learning involved!
We talked about the Mayflower.
We talked about the ocean and how God made it to be all shades of blues, greens and grays.
We talked about the sun and how God made it to be all different shades of yellows, oranges and reds.
We talked about clouds.
And obviously they got to color and schmere glue around :)
Our little supervisor :)
My mom gave us this book last year.
If you don't have it I HIGHLY suggest you buy it!
It's full of beautiful pictures and the words are so lovely!
My favorite line in the book is when it's talking about what people do in November...
"They travel very far on a special November day just to share a meal with one another and to give thanks for their many blessings- for the food on their tables and the babies in their arms."
