Thanksgivinig Activities

~Alex is 32 months~
Tot School

So I decided to take a break for the alphabet so we could do some of the fun Thanksgiving activities I have seen in the blog world.

We read Five Silly Turkeys  by Salina Yoon
This is a cute little Thanksgiving counting book, it counts backward from five. Very similar to Ten Terrible Dinosaurs that we read the other week. 

We went for a walk even though it was gray and dismal outside. Woody HAD to come with us.

Woody climbed  a tree.
We made a hand print turkey. Alex put red, orange and yellow hand prints on a piece of paper. Then I cut out a circle and oval out of a brown paper bag for the body. I drew on the details and then we glued on some googly eyes. Then I cut out the turkey.

 Then Alex worked on sorting people and food from 1+1+1=1 Thanksgiving Preschool Pack

and we did some puzzles from Lawteedah's Thanksgiving Tot Kit

We haven't used our cardboard blocks for a while so I pulled them out and Alex had a great time building towers and then destroying them. 

and that was our day....

I'm sharing this on We Play  Show and Tell  Read.Explore.Learn and  Thanksgiving for Toddlers linky party

  6. I love how you let him paint his own hands for the prints. Makes it so much more meaningful.
