MommyMaestra's Thanksgiving Week
Welcome to Thanksgiving Week on MommyMaestra. I have some wonderful bilingual resources lined up for you and another giveaway, so be sure to check back often (and share MM with your amigos!).
There are already so many incredible activities, decorations, and crafts described on the internet. My Pinterest Thanksgiving board is filling up! If you haven't been following it, feel free to go and take a look and see if you find something wonderful to do with your kids.
Thanksgiving might be my favorite holiday of the year because all I have to do is do a little cooking, show up, and eat.
But most importantly, I love the reminder to be thankful. I spend these few weeks reflecting on and remembering what it is I hold closest to my heart. I think about my family and I take time to think about the things I love most about them.
I also wonder how it is I can help teach my children about being thankful and how can I help them learn to express that gratitude. I've been trying to think of some sort of action or gift we can create ourselves to give to those we appreciate. Something we can easily do each year.
Does your family have a special tradition that you reserve for this time of year?
