Thanksgiving Memory Baskets

Thanksgiving Memory Baskets Craft from www.daniellesplace.com

Chocolate Earth Balls - The pilgrims lived in England where the king made all the laws and the people had to obey them. He told them what church they had to go to and how they had to worship. The pilgrims believed that they should be free to worship God the way they wished. When they heard about the New World in North America, they thought it would be a great place where they could go and live in freedom.

Candy and Crackers are placed in the basket to represent different parts of the Thanksgiving story.

Print out the basket patterns: (blank basket Pattern, Pattern Shown Pattern, or triangle design basket Pattern).

Color the baskets and then staple the sides together by overlapping the pointed ends. Staple the basket handle to the sides. Introduce each of the following objects and ask your students how they might relate to the First Thanksgiving story.

Tiny Twist Pretzels - The pilgrims believed in God and felt that they should be free to worship God the way they wanted to. They should be able to pick their own pastors and make their own laws. The pretzels represent praying hands. The pilgrims prayed for a place they could go to be free to worship God the way they wanted to. They prayed for Gods protection on their trip across the ocean and for God to help them in the new land.

Oyster crackers or Other Dried Bread and Jerky - If the weather was bad on the Mayflower, the pilgrims had to eat cold biscuits and salted meat.

Stick Pretzel - The pilgrims cut down trees and used logs to build their homes.

Mini Marshmallows - Reminds us of snow and the first winter in the new land in which only half the pilgrims survived.

Candy Corn and Gold Fish Crackers - Squanto showed the pilgrims how to grow corn by placing four seeds into a little mound of earth and placing fish around the seeds.

Life Saver Candies - God helped the pilgrims survive in the new land. He sent Squanto to help the pilgrims and show them how to find food. He was their life saver.

Maple candies - Squanto showed the pilgrims how to tap the maple trees to get their sap.

Teddy Grahams - The pilgrims had to learn to defend themselves against wild animals like bears.
