Thanksgiving Finger Puppets

Pilgrim & Native American finger puppets for kids to make

Thanksgiving is a great time for story telling and your Thanksgiving Finger Puppets  make the stories even more fun. Start out by telling your story and then encourage the kids to make up a story of their own to go with their puppets.


The first Thanksgiving probably included corn which records show was plentiful at the first harvest, might have been served, but not in the way most people enjoy it now. In those days, the corn would have been removed from the cob and turned into cornmeal, which was then boiled and pounded into a thick corn mush or porridge that was occasionally sweetened with molasses.
