On Monday night, we played a fun little game together as a family. To prepare I had gone and found several pieces of healthy food clipart and printed it off. I also drew a cornucopia onto a piece of brown cardstock and attached it to another piece of white cardstock to make for a larger area too attach our pictures to. I taped the cornucopia up on the wall. Before we began our game, we talked about what the cornucopia symbloizes and why it is a symbol used for our Thanksgiving holiday.
We let the girls fish for the food pictures so we could fill up our cornucopia - each piece of food had a paperclip attached to it and the fishing pole of course had a magnet on the end of the string.
The girls took turns fishing for a piece of the food. When they got one, they had to tell me one thing they were thankful for and I wrote it down on the picture of food (Lou, of course, was able to write down on her own what she was thankful for). Then we put a little glue on the picture and they attached it to the cornucopia.
It was a fun way to share with each other the things that we are thankful for.
