Pilgrim Turkey Refrigerator

After the Tigers lost, we decided to change the refrigerator. Because it was so close to Halloween, we went right into the Thanksgiving holiday. The hat is black and white construction paper. The feathers, beak, and feet are cut out of felt. The turkey body, lapels, and hands are from brown construction paper.

Halloween Activity Wall

Our next activity wall is centered around Halloween. I started by drawing a web on a large sheet of white paper and hung it on the wall. 

To create the spiders, I cut 4 sheets of white cardstock into four pieces each. I then cut black, red, and purple construction paper into 8 pieces. From the cut construction paper, I cut out circles. I glued a circle on each of the white pieces of cardstock. I glued on google eyes and drew legs and a mouth on each spider.

Each of the spiders is a daily activity. The spider hanging down from the web has the activity we will do that day. 

Here are our activities:
