Thanksgiving Pumpkin Mosaic Craft
by Melissa Michael, Bucks County Children's Museum
This is an easy and beautiful mosaic craft, perfect to do with your kids while talking about why we celebrate Thanksgiving. During class at the Bucks County Children's Museum, we read a story about how the Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to plant crops such as corn, squash, and beans! This was such a needed gift for the Pilgrims, as they were feeling discouraged after surviving their first harsh winter in the new Colonies. The new crops grew well, and the Native Americans also taught them how to hunt. To thank their new friends, the Pilgrims invited them to share in a meal with all of these foods.
