Over the past several months, I’ve been working with Zylie and Friends to create content for the Passport section of their site, featuring some great craft ideas and a pretty amazing writing contest (the prize is a trip to NYC!!).

Here are nine of my favorite activities (crafts + a recipe) that relate to Fall and Thanksgiving:

1. Chineese Egg Drop Soup

2. African Thumb Piano (It really plays!)

3. Plastic Bottle Turkey Bowling

4. Easy Paper Pilgrim Hats (for bear and child)

5. Hanging Gratitude Leaf Mobile (my favorite, I think! :))

6. Coffee Filter Colored Leaves

7. Floating Mayflower Boats

8. Butterfly Window Mosaic

9. DIY Holiday Scratch Art Cards (I found it pretty cool that you can make these, even if it’s a little messy!)

Many of the remaining activities are designed to go with the books that accompany the bears, Zylie and Shen. The books are actually free to read online here. And the awesome Adventure Kits (bear + book + outfit + accessories) are here.
