Are you looking for a creative way to teach your kids about the importance of gratitude? With a few simple materials, you and your kid can enjoy some bonding time and learn about giving thanks during this upcoming holiday season!
You will need:
- Colored paper (Fall leaf colors)
First, ask your child to trace an outline of a tree with branches on a piece of cardboard with a pencil. Then, cut out the tree with a cutter and scissors. Make sure your kid is using these tools under your supervision. If you have young children, cut the tree out for them to prevent accidents from occurring. Then, trace the cut-out tree on another piece of cardboard and cut out the duplicate.
Draw a straight line down both trees, measure one inch down the lines, and make a mark. For one tree, cut from top to bottom, stopping at the one-inch mark. For the other tree, cut from bottom to top, stopping at the one-inch mark. Slide the trees through the slots perpendicularly, and now you should have a standing structure of a tree.
Cut out shapes of autumn leafs on colored paper and ask your kid to write down the things they are thankful for on each leaf. Use tape to stick the leaves onto the tree branches and there you have it, your own Thanksgiving tree!

Halloween may be over but the holiday fun continues since Thanksgiving is just around the corner. In anticipation of another great holiday, JumpStart is preparing for great times of feasting and family with a bounty of new features you will want to partake of.
Mosey on DownTown where you will find the Mayflower. Take a tour through this historical vessel and imagine life as a pilgrim traveling to the new world.
If you are in the mood for some mischievous fun, you will notice a large number of turkeys wandering around the Mayflower. Give them a good chase and laugh as they flap and squawk in a desperate escape. Should you prove quick enough to catch one, your astonishing speed will make its head spin.
While you may disagree, no Thanksgiving meal is complete without some fresh produce. Hurry over to the Boardwalk because waves of pesky insects are invading the garden. Defend your fruits and vegetables from the hordes of hungry bugs to salvage your plants and save your Thanksgiving feast.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for family and friends to come together and JumpStart wants to celebrate this festive occasion with you. With all of the exciting new features coming, you will not only get into the Thanksgiving mood but feel part of one great, big JumpStart family!
