Kylee and I are working on several Thanksgiving day activities, but I wanted to go ahead and post a few today. The first is a printable that allows your child (with help from you!) to create an acronym of THANKS. Take each letter from thanks and choose something that you are truly thankful for this year. Then sign and date it and place it in your child's "All About Me" book! Find this printout here.
Another quick thought is to print out these place mats for the kid table on Thanksgiving day. Your child will enjoy writing and coloring on his or her special page. Provide a few crayons and pens and let them decorate while you are fixing plates and setting the table. If you want to laminate it and use marker instead, that would also be great. If you decide to let your child decorate this printable as is, then when the day is over, this would also be a great addition to his or her "All About Me" book!
