We have so much to be thankful for! I love Thanksgiving…a time to reflect on all the wonderful blessings in our life. With Thanksgiving being just 1 week away, I have been talking to our preschooler about what it means to be thankful. Kind of a hard concept to get initially, but he’s getting it. He came up with a LONG list of things he’s thankful for. On the list were the obvious ones…God, Dad, brother, every other family member, then there were funny ones like storms, trees, tv, Thomas, and his bike. So cute to hear the mind of an almost 3 year old. We made a turkey craft today to show our top 4 things he’s thankful for.
First, he took a card stock piece of paper and used do-a-dot markers to make dots all over the page. Then, I found a turkey silhouette picture online and traced it onto the paper and cut it out.
And lastly, we added some feathers. I took some extra felt we had and cut them into the shape of feathers. Then I wrote his top 4 things he is thankful for.
This little project will be fun to look at and remind us all that we are thankful for.
