Thanksgiving Week & A New Focus

I like school weeks right before a holiday when we put the normal workbooks away and do something a little different.  This week we're using the Thanksgiving Pre-K pack I found at Over the Moon.
Beck especially loves the puzzles.

For today's craft/activity Beck & Peyton painted Indian Corn (an idea I saw at I Heart Crafty Things). 

And to make the week even more exciting, we've started a new chapter in Teaching Your Children Joy.  The last of the Physical Joys, this month we're focusing on Nature.  With all the other busy things going on this week, we're just going to take it easy.  Maybe we'll...

~ Look at picture books of animals, habitats, and plants
~Make an extra effort to point out things we're seeing outdoors
~And even though it's getting really cold, bundle up and take a nature walk around our neighborhood

What adventures are you having with your kids this holiday week?


  1. Love the painted corn. So pretty and I bet it was really fun too. Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness.

  2. Your Indian Corn turned out so cute! It looks like your boys had fun making it. Thanks for sharing the link to my blog. :)


It's so nice to hear your ideas! Thanks for taking the time to share.
