We just started our Thankful List – something we do every November. This year we are putting feathers into a pinecone turkey with the things we are thankful for written on each feather. My 4 year-old’s first feather says, “I’m thankful for our thankful turkey,” and my 2 year old’s says, “I Superman!”
November’s Smarty is a Scavenger Hunt – a perfect rainy day activity! Scavenger hunts directly target picture-object matching, and visual and spatial memory skills. Because a scavenger hunt can be adapted with endless variations it can be used to target a myriad of skills and is an appropriate activity for preschool to adulthood.
