Thanksgiving Placemats

 After learning about the first Thanksgiving, Ella decided to make some Native American placemats for our Thanksgiving feast on Thursday.  Court and I helped her trace a Native American design and some Pilgrims and Indians onto paper.  She then colored and drew her own designs to decorate them.  When she was done, I laminated them so that the food wouldn't ruin them. 

Next, I plan to have her make name plates for everyone.  She'll get some handwriting practice and have fun making more decorations for the table.

Here's a good children's Thanksgiving book: Thanksgiving: A Harvest Celebration
