Sharing the Bread

Pat Zietlow Miller

Celebrate food and family with this heartwarming Thanksgiving story!

Children will use yoga poses to join a large family prepare their Thanksgiving dinner.

This Thanksgiving activity is fun for children in preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary grades.

Gently sway your arms and legs, to make the flames of the fire.

Tick-tock your arms side-to-side, to knead the dough…

…then line your loaves up, and start to grow!

How high can your loaf rise?

Turn your body into a great big turkey!

Take a deep breath of that Thanksgiving smell.

Wrap your arms around your knees, give a squeeze, and roll back as the drops of lemon juice fall into the cranberries.

See if you can touch toes with the people on the mats next to you to make a giant pumpkin pie.

Now lift your hands overhead, to add enough whipped cream to touch the sky!

As you go elbow-to-opposite-knee, see how fast you can mash potatoes.

Swing the cider jug, and reach down to carefully pour a drink in every mug.

Slowly do this enough times to pour cider for everyone!

The baby is a sleeping mouse. Be snug and happy!

It’s time to put on a pilgrim hat, and give a happy shout –


Come to the table, and look around at all your friends.

We are grateful to be warm and fed.

What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner?
