It was hard to choose, but here are our top 5 activities that we have chosen from some very talented parents and teachers who share their early years learning through play ideas online. Head over to their websites to find out more!

2. Thanksgiving Bingo

Everyone loves, bingo, what fun playing with all the pictures from thanksgiving the food, to seasons and so much more.

This is brought you from Vanessa Levin.  Use a linking cube or counter or crayon to play. To make it even more fun it is suggested. The first child to get one entire row covered shouts “Bingo!” OR they could shout “Gobble! Gobble!” for a Thanksgiving twist.

3. Stuff the Turkey

We love the sound of ‘stuff the turkey’ what great way to get the kids playing together of all ages. If you have smaller children put them in teams and work together.

All you need is brown paper bag (large and small) stapler, white paper for onions, brown paper for bread and green paper for celery.
