Craft ideas:
•  Make an invitation for Bigpaw to come to your house for Thanksgiving.
•  Draw Thanksgiving dinner at your house with your family, Bigpaw, and everyone with whom you would like to share 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!
