Time to gear up and get ready for MY favorite holiday, Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving to me is the ultimate holiday because it’s not commercialized (except for grocery store sales), so it’s easy to celebrate the true meaning of the holiday; being thankful for our many blessings.
Here are some resources around the internets to help you and your family celebrate this wonderful season. Enjoy!
(Be sure to check back often, as I will be updating this page during Nov. as I find cool new links and resources.)
Pumpkin Patch: 30 Days Of Thanks & Giving. The Pumpkin Patch as an free download for 30 days worth of crafts, games, & learning.
Thanksgiving Thankful Countdown. SugarDoodle has a cute countdown to thanksgiving printable activity.
Thanks and Giving Trees. Chocolate on my Brain has printable trees to record your blessings and things you do to bless others.
Thanksgiving Trees can be made many different ways – on doors, walls, bulletin boards, etc. Some families add one leaf (blessing) per day per family member. Other families brainstorm and fill up their tree with leaves all at once. Either way you do it, it’s a great visual reminder of our many blessings.
