This month we are focusing on being Thankful and ways to show Kindness towards others. To help with this we have crated a Thankful Tree where the leaves are handwritten notes of what we are thankful for.
So to help spread this mindset we started our tree on our Family Diner night so our friends could join with us. I was very happy with how engaged everyone was and the time and thought they put into their leaves.

I asked A what she wanted to do the next day. She answered with “eat ice cream all day long.” Now as fun as that sounds I told her that was not quite possible. So instead I found many activities that centered around ice cream. And what a fun day it was going to be!
I had several activities set up and a few more we created along the way. We started by reading Should I Share My Ice Cream (thanks for the book mom!). Then we did our activities all throughout the day. We had 1) Pompom Sprinkles (inspiration from here),2) Alphabet Scoops, & 3) Making our own ice cream. Then we added 4) Dice lead ice cream coloring. What a fun day it was. (And most of these activities were so super easy to set up & for the most part A & S could rotate as they pleased between them.)
