There are a whole slew of great books about the Pilgrims, but I wanted to do something a little different, so we watched, drumroll please:
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
I remember seeing this as a little kid and my Mom recording it, as well as the other historical specials (which I think I’m the only one who remembers these), and then watching it over and over and over again. The Pilgrim Thanksgiving is included as a bonus feature and I make the kids watch it every year…….
Ahhhh…… Good times!
And what else do you do when learning about the Pilgrims, but make a Mayflower?
So, I saved a whole slew of milk cartons and orange juice cartons, much to Jeff’s chagrin, cut a hole in them, and then let the kids happily paint their own Mayflowers.
And now about a week later, while they’re resting I’ve set them up along with two of the lighthouses to be a fun playscape when they come down from “resting.”
What do you think, will this get me a few minutes of time alone?
Looks like the answer is yes.
