Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JEDK 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stars2015 Simple but creative!
Simple but facilitates creativity. The children created their own thanksgiving stories using the stickers. Each was uniquely different! Excellent and fun!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeschoolMomFromFL Great Thanksgiving activity
I have ordered these Thanksgiving sticker scenes over the years for Sunday School classes, homeschool co-ops, and most recently for a Thanksgiving activity for the 1st grade class my family has adopted at an inner city elementary school. They are HUGE and have SO MANY stickers that I've never seen a child actually run out of stickers or "finish" the activity. So many stickers allows them to really think about each element of the Thanksgiving story - the Pilgrims, the Native Americans, the food, the ships, etc. They are simple enough for a 1st grade class but have enough detail to not bore a 5th grader. I highly recommend these!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DRMTeacher Good activity to encourage writing
Use this sticker scene to encourage writing in elementary school. If students are just starting to spell, supply a word list.

Bought these for my Sunday school class, kids 6-10 years old. They had a lot more fun than I thought they would. Really helps to expand their creativity.
The only negative is that I did have to take gluesticks out, because not all of the stickers were sticky...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grannyc 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.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LiftLadyJan 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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KCMomma 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.
