Preschool Storytime Ideas
Thanksgiving - revised
Many Thanksgiving stories are too long for preschoolers, but there are a few that can work with our age group. Mix them with books on cooking and family dinners and you can have a great Thanksgiving storytime. For crafts, there are several choices. Make placemats by cutting out magazine pictures of food and gluing the pictures to construction paper. Or make paper turkeys to decorate the table: familyfun.go.com/arts-and-crafts/season/specialfeature/thanksgiving_crafts_ms/
