Elementary (K - 2nd):

Pirate Treasure Boxes

What do we treasure?
Each student will get a small wooden treasure chest to decorate, then we will fill them with things we treasure in our lives. These can be pictures or written words on slips of paper.  Anyone wishing to donate old magazines or catalogs for cutting out pictures is welcome to do so.  Students may bring small photos of loved ones to place in their treasure boxes.  Art supplies (paper, markers will be out for drawing) I will try to play "my favorite things" song as sung in the sound of music, at the beginning to help get the ideas flowing.  These filled treasure boxes that go home with each student may be helpful in reminding us what we all are thankful for at thanksgiving time.
