Our Mayflower ship  and Thanksgiving set are a yearly favorite, I am so glad they all still love it! I also had a basket of prepared activities, and her Thanksgiving books!

I got bags of gems from the Target dollar spot when they were 50% off this year!  The kids have played with these so much!

Thanksgiving -0314 

We had a blast for a couple of weeks with our Thanksgiving theme!  She loves turkeys so she got really into this one, much more than our fall theme week since she no longer likes scarecrows!

Painting a turkey was the first chosen activity!

Many of her activities were in a Thanksgiving Notebook for her to flip through and choose each day!

Do your little love Q-Tip Painting? Here’s a free Thanksgiving set, with a few Thanksgiving images and their beginning letter to paint!  My daughter also likes to help me put tiny dots of white glue on each circle and then sprinkle glitter on it all to make glittery dot letters.  We have also glued Perler beads to them.  Be creative and have fun with the tiny dot letters!

Thanksgiving Calendar Connections 2013

A couple of years ago we released the Thanksgiving Calendar Connections cards. Each year the date of Thanksgiving changes, so there needed to be an update last year. If you downloaded the set last year, you won’t need this one, last year’s update had cards for 2012-2015, in the premium version {with the color border and prints front to back, that we usually sell}. I deleted the 2012 cards and this year have a new 2013-2015 download available, if this set is new to you!

The premium version of the new Thanksgiving Calendar Connections cards updated for 2013-2015 can be downloaded on the main Calendar Connections webpage, for FREE! Just scroll down to the Thanksgiving section.

The facts are written at a 3-6th grade level but you will be able to water them down for younger kids. It’s a great way to involve your entire family in exploring a particular theme.

NOTE: these DO print front to back, as they are the premium design.

I updated the small set for 2013 too, find it on the same webpage.

There is no eBook version of this set, due to the fact that I misplaced the folder with the images we used and it would take forever to find them again!


The cards fit my particular pocket chart calendar.

but you could use a poster foam board and velcro to easily create your own set up. You could also use a standard pocket chart.


You can use most of our Calendar Connections cards for any month! We now have 15 sets to choose from!

Thanksgiving ~ Just Color!

Just Color Thanksgiving

Ladybug and Krash love to color, which is new for me since PacMan disliked it as a younger child.  There are days when I can’t get enough coloring pages printed out for them, let alone hop online and download one page at a time like most coloring freebies online are.

I plan to take the idea of Just Color! and make simple theme packs all focused around coloring.  There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities {color by word, color by #/letter, find and color, count and color, etc.}.

The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

It made sense for me to begin with Thanksgiving coloring activities as my first set, and I have many more already in the works!  I hope many of you who have coloring fans like I do will enjoy these printables!

Remember, if you want to make a mini coloring book, you can always scale down PDF files!
