I die-cut several turkeys and listed a Thanksgiving-ish activity on each one. I set a timer for 15 minutes, 20 minutes, etc. We go on with our day, but when the timer beeps we stop and I choose someone to pick a turkey from the basket.
We sing a song and read a story. We finish up any Novembery things I couldn't quite fit in. We pass the Thankerchief.
We survey ten people and graph our favorite Thanksgiving foods. I kind of thought this was a universal classroom activity, but this was about the only photo I could find!
We do some probability and if I'm feeling brave, we might make a yummy treat like these darling Pilgrim hats or one of these bazillion turkey snacks (even more here!).
I like to give the kids some little vegetable pictures to color and turn into patterns or we might make some pattern block turkeys.
We have loads of low-stress fun and the kids never realize they're doing (mostly) educational stuff!
