Teach your preschooler about Thanksgiving with fun books and activities!
It’s almost time for Thanksgiving, a time of year to share with family and friends and realize everything we have to be thankful for. If you have a preschooler, they may not understand the meaning of the day, or how it happened. Here’s a list of preschooler-approved Thanksgiving books
that will help elaborate on this great day:
The Pilgrims’ First Thanksgiving, by Ann Mcgovern
Teach your preschooler the history behind Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks, by Margaret Sutherland & Sonja Lamut
Help your preschooler be grateful through this book and its emphasis on giving thanks and the Thanksgiving feast.
What is Thanksgiving, by Michelle Medlock Adams and Amy Wummer
Share the meaning of the holiday through rhymes in this fun book for preschoolers.
After explaining the meaning of Thanksgiving, keep your child occupied with some fun Thanksgiving activities. Have them contribute to the meal by making fall-inspired thanksgiving cookies. Kids can also get involved in setting the table with these fun, decorative ideas.
Most importantly, provide your child with something entertaining to do during downtime. Tadpoles has created a fall coloring page. Simply print and have your child’s imagination take charge. Display their work of art by either scanning and emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org, or, simply take a picture with your smartphone and email us and we’ll post it on our Facebook page!
