The children will parade out in their handmade costumes and sing a few festive songs for you. After that they will sit at the place mat they made at their Feast table.

We will have a blessing then families are asked to go with their child to the buffet to share in the delicious feast food our community has worked so hard to prepare. The children can eat at their spot at the table. After the feast please take your child's festive art work home with you. You child can go with you or stay to finish our fun day!

Its not too late to sign up on Perfect Potluck for our Thanksgiving Feast next week! The children are excited!

We are THANKFUL for your helping hands :)

November 14, 2018, Wednesday

Today we were thankful for birthdays!  We celebrated a friend's 4th birthday today by making him a giant birthday card and enjoying mini cupcakes after lunch that he brought to share.

Our morning workshop tables were pumpkin spice play dough, potato washing (for our feast), drawing, cranberry investigation, and ocean sand.  At morning meeting we shared more thankful feathers and practiced our songs for the feast.

Our snack was grapes, strawberries, and pretzels.  After snack we had show and share.  Thank you all for sending in the wonderful I items.

Today we continued working on our headbands for our feast costumes.  Traditionally we have broken out into groups with some children being pilgrims and some Native Americans.  This year we are letting the children choose anything at all from the first Thanksgiving story that they want to make on their headband.  We also investigated and talked about cranberries.

We went outdoors.  It was a brisk day out there today.  Time to pack those hats and gloves. Please remember to clearly label everything! Many mittens look alike ;)

After lunch we continued working on our costumes.  We also made butter the Pilgrim way...well almost, I suppose the Pilgrims did not shake their heavy cream to the beat of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" song.  It was a lively jumping circle of friends with lots of giggles passing the jar of heavy cream to shake into butter.  We did it!  Then we examined the jar to think about just how that happened.  We drained off the buttermilk and stored the butter in the refrigerator until our feast!
It was a fun lively way to end the day.
