Thanksgiving Day Childrens Activity

Picture from the Dr Jean and friends blog

I came across this post today on how to teach children about Thanksgiving while making a bracelet!!  I loved it!!  It made me wish my kids were still little so that we could make this.  If your kids are little this is a great site with awesome ideas!!  You will need twine or pipe cleaners, white, blue, green, black, brown, red, yellow, and orange beads.  I might have to make one of these for myself.  The poem is off of Dr Jean and friends blog  I cruised through this site and was amazed at all the great ideas.

With this bracelet you will know    (Start with a pipe cleaner.)
The first Thanksgiving that was long, long ago.
The Pilgrims set sail from far away
On the Mayflower with tall white sails.   (Insert a white bead.)
They sailed many days across the ocean blue.  (Add a blue bead.)
The seas were rough, but the ship came through.
At last they spotted land so green.  (String on a green bead.)
They were so happy they cheered and screamed.
The first year was so hard and black.  (Now a black bead.)
Many died and wished that they could go back.
But the Native Americans gave them a hand
And helped them survive in the strange new land.
They decided to celebrate in a special way
And that became the first Thanksgiving day.
They prepared a feast with turkeys brown  (Add a brown bead.)
And red cranberries that they had found.   (Time for a red bead.)
Yellow corn that they had learned to grow  (Insert a yellow bead.)
And orange pumpkin pies, don’t you know!   (Last an orange bead.)
But before they ate the turkey and dressing,
They all held hands for a thankful blessing.  (Twist the ends of the
                                                pipe cleaner to make a bracelet.)

Where to begin

Okay, seriously not sure how it got to be November 9th and I haven't posted yet.  Slacker, well not really.  I took a little weekend get away with the hubby, then I have been working at the shop a lot more.  (I haven't forgotten the tutorial for the maxi skirt.   I got my machine back but it is still not right.  Go figure!!)  Anyhoo, I have been busy with all my new projects for our Christmas Open House which starts Friday November 16th and Saturday November 17th.  We have LOTS of fantastic things for you to make for yourself or your neighbors!  In the meantime this is a picture of my kitchen counter.  Yes, I do have a sewing room but there is something about the kitchen.  Right?  Are you a tidy creator or a little messy?
