We set up tables for our lunch and crafts at a facility available on base and got all dressed up in our costumes. Surprisingly, out of the 20ish kids there, only 2 were Pilgrims--we brought 3 Indians and 1 Pilgrim.
We read the tale of Stone Soup (notice I'm dressed as my favorite T-giving character, the turkey)
prepared our soup with three stones and all the ingredients everyone brought
played some games while the soup cooked
ate our soup--delicious!
Indian girls and the lone Pilgrim girl crafted
Indian boys and their mother crafted
The whole group gathered for our photo op with the sacrificial turkey pinata
And finally we came back in for dessert--which just so happened to also be Lucy's birthday cupcakes since it was her 3rd birthday (Ted, in his favorite T-giving character--the football player).
We also had these cute little Pilgrim hats for dessert. How adorable is that?
And after we got home Riley wanted to make an Indian costume for herself...
