I think one of my absolute favorite things the 4 year old classes at preschool do is their PowWow. They spend a lot of time learning about Thanksgiving and making Thanksgiving crafts. They make a shirt with their "Native American name" on it and a headdress that has a story written in pictures (with the picture translation on the inside). They also make an adorable handprint placemat. At Ellie's PowWow this year they had chicken nuggets, cornbread, and pumpkin pie. Ellie has been so excited for the PowWow that was on Tuesday and Monday after school it was all she talked about. Fortunately it lived up to all of her expectations!
The shirt they make is one of my favorite crafts they do all year. Ellie's Native American name is "Swings with Stars" which if you know Ellie is the PERFECT name for her...she LOVES to swing!
