Thanksgiving is just around the corner! While we’re getting ready for the season by planning delicious meals and gatherings, we don’t want to lose sight of the educational opportunity for you and your little ones.
Historically, Thanksgiving is the day that Native Americans and pilgrim settlers held a feast at Plymouth after having a successful harvest. Both parties gathered together and gave their thanks. The Native Americans had, of course, lent a hand to the early settlers by teaching them how to catch fish and plant crops, like corn.
This Thanksgiving, make sure to take some time to teach your kids about the rich history behind this great national tradition. Our favorite way to highlight these classroom lessons at home are by using Toys that Teach®. Learning through the art of play has a wonderful way of cementing educational information with kids. They explore and come to realizations on their own–– and it’s fun!
