Craft Corn Harvest Napkin Rings
Holidays are a key part of kindergarten social studies curriculum. Throughout the year, children will celebrate together, and talk about customs that draw them into community. You can support this learning by inviting your child to help you with Thanksgiving household preparations. Here’s a craft that connects children to the harvest theme of the holiday, as well as to the story of the feast shared by the first Pilgrims and the native Americans who showed them how to plant their first corn. By using patterns, it also sneaks in a little math practice, too!
What You Need:
- Tan pipe cleaners
- Children’s plastic “pony” beads in harvest colors: red, orange, brown
- Tan raffia ribbon
