With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we thought you might enjoy some more fun holiday activities. Plus, in our house we need to take a break from our normal Tot School schedule, so I can start prepping for Thanksgiving. To start us off, I pulled a shape craft from my archives that we did last year. My son was 23 months at the time. I hope you enjoy.

This shape pilgrim is a great art project for Thanksgiving. No Time For Flash Card’s Shape Scarecrow Craft inspired me with the idea.
If you would like to create this craft with your child, you will need color construction paper of your choice, glue, scissors, a marker and the following shapes cut from construction paper. (I apologize for my poorly cut ovals.)
At first this project seemed some what difficult for my son because he didn’t like to get the glue on his hands and he just stuck the pieces anywhere on the paper, but once I started to put glue where each shape was suppose to go, he really got into it.
As we glued each shape on the paper we named it and the color. He really does well at naming his shapes, but is still working on his colors. I hope to create more shape crafts in the future because it ended up being really easy.
