‘Horn of plenty’ with fall bounty…..
Thanksgiving is a time for gathering with friends and family.
Everyone has things that they can be thankful for. Helping children recognize the things in their lives to be thankful for is one way to nurture the development of empathy and consideration of others. Children that are able to look at their world through the eyes of others are more likely to become caring and contributing members in their community.
Thanksgiving is a time for turkeys, families, and reflection. Through hands-on activities, children:
• Create a family portrait
• Make a horn of plenty (cornucopia)
• Play some fun turkey games
Fall is a time for thanksgiving and harvest celebrations. These activities are filled with joy and happiness as we gather with friends and family.
