Native American family: cardboard toilet paper/paper towels tubes, construction paper. Tipi: sticks, rubber band, paper grocery bag.
Pilgrim Family; Lincoln Log house.
Campfire: cardboard circle, stones, sticks, tissue paper.
Toasting Marshmallows: because The Queen Bee insisted that where there is a campfire, there are toasted marshmallows. Always.
Great beginning book for introducing the concepts of the holiday: Pilgrims, Native Americans, Mayflower, harvest, feast. etc.
A more in depth look at the first Thanksgiving. Explains the hardship of the trip on the Mayflower and the first year in North America. Good detail of what life was like for Pilgrim children on the journey as well as how they helped their families with crops, food preparation, and more. A great book for kids beyond preschool level.
All of the links for these crafts can be found on my Pinterest Thanksgiving board.
