Today I told the story of the first Thanksgiving. For each part the kids added a bead.
Brown bead: Pilgrims left England
White bead: Sailed on the Mayflower
3 blue beads: Long trip on the ocean
Green bead: Spotted land
Black bead: Long hard winter and many didn't survive
Tan bead: Native Americans who helped the Pilgrims
4 beads for the foods served at first Thanksgiving
-1 red: Cranberries
-1 yellow: Corn
-1 orange: Pumpkins
-1 brown: Turkey
Here are their bracelets.
