The preschool years are so fun for me. I love being able to create preschool lesson plans for my youngest kids. We have so much fun reading and crafting. Books definitely serve as the centerpiece to all of my lesson plans. This year I put together some Thanksgiving theme preschool lesson plans. My goal is to do these plans for the three days before Thanksgiving. Let’s take a look at everything I have planned!
Thanksgiving Preschool Lesson Plans
On Monday I plan to do a lesson on The Mayflower. I will use a coloring page from my Thanksgiving coloring pack so the kids can color and I plan to read to them “The Very First Thanksgiving Day” and “The Thanksgiving Story.”
Other fun Mayflower activities may include:
The First Thanksgiving
One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories as a child was making little pilgrim hats out of construction paper. I don’t know why, but I just loved dressing up like a pilgrim. This easy DIY pilgrim hat is a lot of fun for kids to make!
We will, of course, read a ton of Thanksgiving themed books.
Turkey Day Activities!
The day before Thanksgiving will be low-key, but my kids love finding leaves in the yard to make their own turkey crafts! We also love our turkey color by number!
Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids
If you’re looking for more Thanksgiving unit study ideas, I have an entire post from a study we did a few years ago!
I try to make sure to put Thanksgiving books on hold pretty early at the library. If I wait too long, I won’t get any before Thanksgiving!
