Our Kindergarten class spent a lot of time discussing the meaning of Thanksgiving and the lovely meal you prepare for them to eat. We brainstormed a list of food we feast on and then each child chose one of their favorites to write a recipe for. We have them typed up to create our very own Kindergarten Thanksgiving Cookbook for you to enjoy. Maybe these recipes will help you out while preparing your family dinner.
