Last Thursday, we had our 2nd annual Homeschool Thanksgiving celebration. I think the total head count was 97 people…who said homeschoolers are not socialized?
Gathering to pray before we start
The children rotated to 6 different stations: Thanksgiving info, butter making, turkey necklace, oreo turkey/indian headband, pumpkin cleanout/thanksgiving tree/Thanksgiving stamps & stencils, and picture frame.
Thanksgiving info – Mrs. Micki read them a Thanksgiving story and even did an indian corn craft with them!
Making butter – Mrs. Starr showed them how to make butter with heavy whipping cream. She also explained how she makes bread from wheat she grinds. Afterwards, they got to try some homemade bread with the butter they made. Yum!
Turkey necklaces - Mrs. Tiffany helped them make turkey necklaces and then I took everyone's picture to put in their picture frame.
Oreo turkey - Mrs. Gina helped them make oreo turkeys and then they made indian headbands real quick! The best part: getting to lick the chocolate icing off their knives.
Pumpkin station - Mrs. Candy told them about how a pumpkin grows and they got to dig seeds out of a pumpkin, then write what they were thankful for and hang it on our Thanksgiving tree, and make pictures with Thanksgiving stamps and stencils.
Picture frame - Mrs. Tiany instructed them how to decorate their picture frame. They used markers and foam stickers to decorate with. After lunch, I printed their pictures to insert into their frame.
Afterwards, we had a big Thanksgiving feast. We filled up 2 tables and an island with food...there was so much to choose from!
