Here are the take home project instructions:
I Am Thankful!
A cornucopia or 'horn of plenty' is usually seen with fruits, vegetables, and ears of grain overflowing. It is a symbol of abundance or having more than enough, as during the first Thanksgiving feast that the Pilgrims and Native Americans shared together. They had an overflow of crops and gave thanks for their great harvest and new found friends.
In November, as it gets closer to Thanksgiving, we also stop and give thanks. Each of us may not have an abundance of possessions, but there are many things in our lives that we can be thankful for. Share with your child what you are thankful for. Then ask your child to tell you what they are thankful for. Have your child color the cornucopia as best as they can and write their name on the blank line so that it says "(your child's name) is thankful!" Help your child to think of at least one thing they are thankful for and to place it inside the cornucopia. (They may want to draw, cut out magazine pictures, find photos, etc.)
May you enjoy this time with your child as you work together on 'I Am Thankful!'
