Welcome back to Homework and Horseplay. Today I am sharing our Tea Time Tuesday Thanksgiving Edition. With Thanksgiving just around the corner we are sneaking in all kinds of fun Thanksgiving treats and activities.
Thanksgiving Day by Lydia Maria Child
Over the river, and through the wood, To grandfather’s house we go; The horse knows the way To carry the sleigh Through the white and drifted snow. Over the river, and through the wood— Oh, how the wind does blow! It stings the toes And bites the nose As over the ground we go. Over the river, and through the wood, To have a first-rate play. Hear the bells ring “Ting-a-ling-ding”, Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day! Over the river, and through the wood Trot fast, my dapple-gray! Spring over the ground, Like a hunting-hound! For this is Thanksgiving Day. Over the river, and through the wood, And straight through the barn-yard gate. We seem to go Extremely slow,— It is so hard to wait! Over the river and through the wood— Now grandmother’s cap I spy! Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done? Hurrah for the pumpkin-pie!
This week we have plenty of baking and cooking to help with for Thanksgiving, so we kept our tea time simple. I broke out our November Dollar Tree STEM Boxes so we could make cornucopias, and we also made pilgrim hats. To make your own pilgrim hat snack you will need:
- Fudge Stripes Cookies
- Yellow frosting
- Reese’s Pieces
These pilgrim hat snacks are super easy to make. You just need to put a little bit of frosting on the bottom of a Rolo, and press it down onto the bottom of a Fudge Stripes cookie. Then put frosting on the back of a Reese’s Pieces candy, and press it to the front of the Rolo.
Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Thanksgiving Edition.
