Learning Through Play.Did you know: What is now undeniably clear in the 21st century is that play is essential, vital, critical, and fundamental to a child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. Without adequate, healthy play, children run the risk of entering school unprepared, growing into teens and adults without needed skills, and failing to meet their potential. Experts at the Institute for Play believe that healthy play in childhood can even prevent violence.
Now is the time toencourage our children to play and give them a playground rich in learning experiences.
These little Pilgrims and Friends are a really great way to teach children about the First Thanksgiving as they play along.These are quick and simple to assemble. We found these over at
The First Thanksgiving(Tune:The Muffin Man )
The Pilgrims came to America
a long, long time ago.
They sailed on the Mayflower
the Mayflower, the Mayflower.
They made friends with the Indians
The Indians, the Indians.
They planted seeds. The corn grew tall
The corn grew tall. The corn grew tall.
These are perfect to have at the kids Thanksgiving table this year. They are fun, festive, educational and free!
Remember, keep it Homespun!
At midnight I will rise to give
thanks to You,
Because of Your righteous
Homespun With Love
