  1. Hi Erica,

    Canadian Thanksgiving was celebrated back on the 2nd Monday in October, but I used the book “Three Young Pilgrims” by Cheryl Harness (Aladdin Picture Books: New York, 1992) to teach about US Thanksgiving and why the holidays are different. The book has wonderful ilustrations and Monkey loved being able to look at the cutaways of the ships. It is about the Allerton family and their arrival on the Mayflower and their first year in the New World. The book is available through Amazon for under $8 new and well under $5 used.

    We topped it off by using the log cabin printables from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency (http://www.state.il.us/hpa/ps/construct_mainstreet.htm#BYOL) to build a village. It was perhaps a tad challenging for Grade 1 fingers bu we had older visitors that weekend and the 8 and 10 year olds loved it.

    Thanks again for putting together a series of really fun printables. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving – we are all so Blessed.

  2. These are so cute!
    Thanks you for the inspiration!

  3. Thank you!!!!!!

I’ll keep trying though, I’m sure there’s a lot of other people out there trying to get them as well. Thank you so much!

  14. This is great! Have a great Thanksgiving!

  15. Just be patient with the download. My page looked blank too at first. It took about 20 minutes to download.

  16. These are amazing! Would it be OK if I link to you on my blog?

  17. Thank you so much, Erica!!! Thank you for sharing all your hard work with us! We SO appreciate it!

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  18. Ahhh, I am so excited about this, Erica! When I was going through the blogs I love for printables, I was sad that you didn’t have any. My little boy loves your creativity and I do too! Thank you for taking the time to do these things! You are so talented.

    Also, I was wondering if you had ever considered enabling the mobile view of your site? I do a lot of planning and pinning on my phone while feeding my baby in the wee hours of the morning and it definitely is easier to use the sites with a mobile view.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  20. Just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all you do. I get to print out fun, free materials to use for my kiddos in my inhome childcare. We all love it. Thank you so much!

  23. Oh my gosh, these are wonderful! So cute, too. :) Thanks so much for sharing! :)

  24. Love these! My preschooler and kindergartener ADORED these today. Thanks for the resource!

  25. I came found your site through a reader. My wife and I homeschool our daughter and we have been talking about Thanksgiving a lot. I wonder if the pictures of the Native Americians are too much. They are caricatures that reinforce stereotypes of the People whom the Pilgrams feasted with. Their dress does not locate them on the East Coast. I know we are looking for cute things for our kids to do, but their are more accurate representations of both the Pilgrams and First People.

    • Jon, I thought some of the same things as you, though I’ll be using these. The art is cartoony and whimsical all the way around, which I know my daughter will enjoy. I found this site through a Pinterest search and am glad to have found it. However, I’d also love to see more accurate, but still kid-friendly images. If you’ve come across them, would you mind sharing? Thank you! And much appreciation to erica for sharing so freely from her bounty of art, too! These will be a nice introduction to her now that she’s at an age to appreciate some history!

  26. I cant beleive you just made this , and are sharing it for FREE! You truely are a kind and giving person. My little one will love to work with these cute activities. Thank you so much sharing your talents with all of us!

  27. Thanks for the printable! This is just what I was looking for!
