We will not have Storytime next Wednesday, so today's theme was gratitude and Thanksgiving! Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Then we made Thank You Puzzles. Line up 10 craft popsicle sticks. Tape them together. Color one side with something you are thankful for. Take the tape off, store in a baggie, and put your puzzle back together :)

Next Storytime will be November 30. The theme is Blankets! It'll be a cozy morning!
