DIY Giant Thanksgiving Sticker Scenes
Hooray for Thanksgiving
I haven't used these yet, but I was delighted to find stickers that actually have to do with the historical holiday. I liked the fact that they were people and not cutesy animals dressed up like Pilgrims. Thanksgiving so often gets squeezed out between Halloween and Christmas. When I use sticker scenes with young children, I often take the time to remove the non-sticker portion of the sheet so that the stickers are easy to see and remove. That way the children are able to remove the stickers without tearing them. Since I haven't used them, I don't know if there will be a problem with sticking. I'll encourage them to save the sheet the stickers came on since the stickers are supposed to be repositional. At any rate, we've got what we need to teach the Thanksgiving story.

This is the second year that I have bought this sticker activity for my daughter's class. I buy the Nativity Scene, too. The children are so excited when they can create a pretty picture that is their own. Last year, some of the children placed the turkeys in the trees, to hide from the Pilgrims!

Nice easy to handle stickers.
it's nice that there are plenty of diverse stickers. It was easy for the kids to make up stories about what was happening in their pictures. Our kids were from ages 3 to 12 and a couple of adults - they all liked the "project." Looking forward to getting other Holiday scenes in the future.

Nice Social Studies Project
The scenes were wonderfully authentic! However, as a teacher, I was disappointed that the stickers did not always stay where my students stuck them. I had many pieces on the floor that had fallen off my students' papers, even some of the larger stickers.

Nice design but quality issues
I really liked the design of the stickers in this Thanksgiving scene and it was helpful in teaching about the original Thanksgiving celebration. However, I was disappointed in how easily the stickers would tear when pulling them off the backing. They also didn't seem to have enough adhesive on them as they kept falling off the page.

Adorable concept, but very disappointing with the end result
I loved this when I saw this in the magazine, and thought it would be a perfect craft for my daycare to illustrate the pilgrims and American Indians sharing Thanksgiving. However, I soon found the stickers are considered "repositionable", which basically means they don't stick at all. I couldn't let the children take the craft home, because all their stickers would fall off the sheet before even leaving my facility! What a bust.

Really colorful and fun
Grandkids really liked, but some of the stickers would fall off. Please make stickers so that they stay stuck on paper!

Cute Idea but they don't stick
I love this idea to reinforce with my preschool class what I have been teaching about Thanksgiving. However, the children got frustrated when a good portion of their stickers fell off when they went take it home.

We have six kids and five nieces and nephews, all ages 1 to 11, and we have been doing these sticker scenes with them on Thanksgiving for 5 or 6 years now! The greatest thing about them is that even the littlest ones just love it even if their scene is not very well done! The people usually end up in the sky and the turkeys sometimes lose their legs :) We always laminate them and use them for placemats, and so now we have about 30 of them in a box because nobody wants to throw them away :)

I use a lot of Oriental Trading crafts at my mom's nursing home. They all suffer from some form of dementia and these crafts help to keep them engaged as well as making decorations for different holidays. A great bargain as there are 46 residents.
