Thanksgiving

Get in the Thanksgiving spirit with this Mommy and Me Art Box! It’s got everything that reminds you of fall: pumpkins, turkeys, falling leaves, and warm muffins. Children will paint their own fall forest scene using a paint resist technique and sponge painting. They’ll create a collage to show off their silly side and assemble a mobile to show the things for which they’re thankful. Then, they’ll learn about rocket thrust as they launch turkey rockets. The box wraps up with a simple recipe for heart-warming muffins.

Activities in the Thanksgiving Box:
Fall Forest Paint Resist
Winter is coming and that means we get to see the leaves changing colors! This project utilizes yarn as part of a paint resist technique. Kids get the opportunity to sponge-paint a fall forest full of reds, yellows, and oranges with a bit of green sprinkled in.

Goofy Pumpkins Collage
Pumpkin decorations are everywhere you look this time of year, but none are as special as this one. In this collage, little ones will create a background of stripes with several fall colors. Then, they’ll let their imaginations run wild as they design their own silly pumpkins.

Thankful Mobile
Gratitude can be a difficult concept to teach to young children, but this craft project can help. Kids will think of five things for which they are thankful and create a decorative mobile to remind them of those things.
