Thanksgiving Week

Last week I was off school, so we took a break from our Mommy and Me ABC Themes to do a light week on Thanksgiving.  

For some reason we have a ton of Thanksgiving books.  My favorites are definitely The Very First Thanksgiving Day and the Acorn Thanksgiving book.
Top the Pie
I printed this adorable pie topping activity from Homeschool Creations.
Thanksgiving Play Dough
This bin had our pumpkin pie play dough, some cutters, some dough stampers, and the dough stamping page I made.

The Thanksgiving vocabulary cards were the activity that we did the most often this week.  That little stinker picks up words so quickly!  He can do them all.
Coloring Thanksgiving pictures
 Reading by the fire and working on a puzzle.
Helping with the cranberry sauce.

It was a nice, relaxing week.  Next week we will get back to a more normal routine!
