Craft ideas:
•  With two pieces of paper, create a Thanksgiving Tree with fold-out door-flaps that open and reveal the animals you?ve drawn beneath.
•  Draw you and your friends doing what you like to do for Thanksgiving.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
