Thanksgiving craft. Make and hang these friendly Thanksgiving lanterns in your classroom or home. Make a grouping and light them up with LED votives. All you will need are scissors and glue. Straight cuts makes this fun and easy to accomplish for the little ones. Using scissors teaches kids the grasp-release motion and how to cut on a line, both skills considered to be pre-writing skills. Practicing this will improve hand strength. *Please note that this craftivity is already included in the Thanksgiving SUPER SALE activity pack.*
