What Supplies Do You Need to Use Thanksgiving Preschool Activities?

Of course, the first thing you'll need is the actual printables, I've created a handy list at the bottom of this post with everything you'll need, check it out by clicking here!

Here is the list of everything you need.

A laminator If you want to keep these printables around as long as you can, so I recommend laminating the pages so you can get the most use out of them. I have three children, so these cards get a lot of use.

-Scissors- You have to cut out the cards, you can use scissors, or this fancy paper cutter.

Manipulatives– This is just a fancy word for something they can use with their hands to create or solve the problem with. So you can use anything you have on hand. Pompoms, tiny erasers, or clothespins to help those fine motor skills muscles. I always go for the clothespins, because opening them is SO good for those muscles they'll need when they start writing. Some of the printables will require these, others will not, but they're good to have on hand.

Preschool Printables for Thanksgiving, How to Differentiate

These cards were put together lovingly by me, with preparing my kids for kindergarten in mind. I love creating things my kids will love and enjoy, and will help boost their knowledge.

You can make a lot of these work for older or younger kids by changing little things in each set. For the Feed the Pumpkin printable as an example, you can give your child just a few pieces of “candy” to feed their pumpkin, so there aren't as many choices. Giving them letters a-g would make it a lot easier to find the letter e, compared to all the letters in the alphabet.

To make it more difficult, you can create a word out of these letters– you might need to print them more than once to create certain words– then you can do something like “THANKSGIVING” and have your child create as many words out of the bigger word as they can.

My kindergartener is learning to read, so it's fun for us to talk about all the words he sees on the paper, and the ones he can create.
