No School No Prob part deux

More fun things to do while the kids are off school.

This week and next we have no less that 3 shortened days and 3 days off.

Ahh???

What’s a mom to do?

Get your craft on, and learn something in the process.

Like what?

Like…

What would Thanksgiving be without the Native Americans?

Well we wouldn’t have Thanksgiving.

We wouldn’t be here.

We’d all have starved to death during those horrible winters in Plymouth Plantation.

But now we have corn, and squash, and turkey.

Phew…

So here’s an ode to those wonderful people that showed the Pilgrims how it’s done.

Frost your cones with an even light layer of frosting.  Turn the cones upside down on a paper plate. Next stick 2-3 toothpicks out of the botton (now the top) of your tee-pee.

Let the kids decorate their own.  Using the writing frosting decorate the sides of the tee-pee.  Let them stick on candies, fruit, and cheerios on as they see fit.

Voila…the teepees the first pilgrims came upon before their first Thanksgiving with the Native Americans, ok so that’s not totally historically accurate at all but I’m going with it for now.
