The month of November is always a bit different for us. Our Classical Conversations group ends for the semester, it starts looking and feeling like fall, and Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations are everywhere! We usually do school a bit different too. The holidays always make me want to slow down and enjoy life. Sip coffee, roast marshmallows, finish (or finally start) those crafts I’ve put off….
That being said, I thought it would be fun to find some Thanksgiving themed ideas that I can use with my kids this week to help us celebrate Thanksgiving with a little learning mixed in! I scoured the internet looking for a variety of things. I hope that you find something that will work for your family. I haven’t used all of these items, so if you find a problem, broken link, or just have a concern about something, PLEASE let me know!
Use the links below (or click on the pictures) to visit these very creative fellow blogs to download the materials.
Thanksgiving Activities by Age
- Check out this really cute pack of activities and worksheets from HomeschoolCreations! Jolanthe is amazing and you’ll find tons of other creative and educational resources on her blog!

Another great resource from Teachers Pay Teacher is Turkey War – Basically this is a set of playing cards with turkeys on them. However, the numbers on the cards are displayed in different ways (dice, tally marks, ten frames, etc). Great for the little ones, but could also be fun for the big brother or sister too!! http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Turkey-War-A-Number-Sense-Game-407110 4. Carisa over at 1 + 1 + 1 = 1 blog has loads of really fun and inspiring creations and posts! This one really seemed fun for the little ones! My little guy is only 17 months old, but he LOVES to paint and draw and I’m totally going to do this Q-tip Painting with him this week!! http://www.1plus1plus1equals1.net/2013/11/thanksgiving-q-tip-painting-printables/ 5. And last, but not least, check out this great set of fun activity printables from Erin at MommyOctopus.com (she’s also a fellow Georgia family!)

I like to take time to do things a little differently near holidays as well. Thanks for sharing these ideas!
