Happy Thanksgiving!

In our district we have very strict rules about food and cooking in the classroom.  If we want to cook or consume anything in the classroom I have to send home permission slips, clear it with the nurse and with the principal.  Anyone else's district that way?  It definitely makes holidays a little more drab.  With that said, the only feast these kiddos get is the school lunch feast.  So, we celebrate the holiday in other ways.  I shared earlier last week our I am Thankful pumpkins.  We also made these adorable handprint Mayflowers today.  Here is one in progress:

Here is the sample/finished product:
I love making handprint crafts.  As a parent, I love receiving them from my daughter as it marks a time and size in her life.  I also love seeing the Kinders reactions to having their hands painted.  Some love it, some are ticklish and some do not like it at all!  As you can see these are very simple to make.  All you need is light blue construction paper, brown paint, blue crayons and some sails cut out of white paper.  The process is easy!  Paint the Kinders hands and then let dry. Once dry they can glue on the sails and color in the ocean!

Happy Thanksgiving!
