    teach them about the pilgrims, read them a book (maybe the littlest pilgrim) and have them make corn meal (have them squish corn!)

    you could also do the whole may flower lesson, with an art project.


    I believe it's always best to teach 4 year olds by reading a picture book about it and then having a short discussion about the book and then a project to go along with it!

    good luck! :)

    My thanksgiving activities typically revolve more around turkeys and feathers and food than the stereotypical first thanksgiving, so I would probably go more with a turkey book and activity. I really like "I know an old lady who swallowed a pie" (thanksgiving food) and 10 Fat Turkeys. (great counting book)

    Some ideas, although they do take some prep on your part...

    pattern feathers to make a headband (turkey headband if you want)... either you can precut the feathers, or have them do it, depending their scissor skill. Talk about/demonstrate a pattern, then have them make one. You can go simple AB or do more complex ones, depending on their skill level.

    You can also give them all the parts to make a turkey (head, body, wings, feet) and have them glue the parts together to make a turkey... this is a good view of their spatial relations :)

    Food... cut and glue pictures from newspaper ads or magazines to make a food collage (these are cute on paper plates)... draw what you like to eat at Thanksgiving...
