This is such a sweet way to display all the wonderful things your students are thankful for. Plus, you'll be thankful for all the wonderful skills this activity includes Check this out:
Here's What's Included: 4 different styles of activity mats. (Single pumpkin, pumpkin with hearts, leaves, and one BLANK mat).
***On the mats with clip art images - students will q-tip dab to create a colorful masterpiece. Then, they will use the writing line at the bottom to write what they are MOST thankful for.
***On the BLANK mat - ANYTHING GOES! What's so awesome about this blank mat is that you can use this with practically any art medium you wish! You can have your students draw a picture to illustrate what they are most thankful for. You can use this space to have your student do hand-print turkeys to take home as a treasured masterpiece. You could have your students decorate this space with stamps or stickers. Make leaf rubbings if you choose! Change it up every year if you want. It's literally like having dozens of different crafts all in one!

*It's an opportunity to practice art skills and employing creativity
*It is truly a prize to send home to parents (it's super cute)
