Thanksgiving Bracelet Story (includes instructions)
With this bracelet, you will know (Start with a pipe cleaner)
The first Thanksgiving that was long, long ago.
The pilgrims set sail from far away
On the Mayflower with tall white sails. (Insert a white bead)
They sailed many days across the ocean blue (Add a blue bead)
The seas were rough, but the ship came through.
At last they spotted land so green (String on a green bead)
They were so happy they cheered and screamed.
The first year was so hard and black (Now a black bead)
Many died and wished that they could go back.
But the Native Americans gave them a hand
And helped them survive in the strange new land.
They decided to celebrate in a special way
And that became the first Thanksgiving Day.
They prepared a feast with turkeys brown (Add a brown bead)
And red cranberries that they had found (Time for a red bead)
Yellow corn that they had learned to grow (Insert a yellow bead)
And orange pumpkin pies, don’t you know! (Last an orange bead)
