Bring in some larger clothes for the kids to try on.  Have the children tell you why we should wear a coat, shoes, hats, etc.
Build a sandwich (from Wonder Time) - Open this pdf file and print it off.  Have the children pretend to build a sandwich.  (You could even pretend to eat them.  Ask everyone how their sandwiches are.  Who likes onions?  Etc.)

Apple Piggies - send home with the children for the parents to cut up apple for their child.  For each piggie you'll need one apples, two googly eyes (attached using peanut butter), fruit roll ups, black pipe cleaner, toothpicks broken in half and gumdrops.  Assemble as shown.

 Here is an idea I'm going to use for the lesson Primary 1 Lesson 32 "I am Thankful for Food and Clothing".  I'm giving each child a brown paper sack with the phrase "I am Thankful for Food and Clothing". Then I'll give the children coloring pages with the pieces of a sandwich and other healthy food items so they can color, cut, and put the food in their "lunch bag". during the activity we'll discuss good foods to put in our body, and where the food comes from.  (Idea by Adrienne Ballantyne / ga08262009)
 I went onto
Making Friends - I printed out a template of a little boy. Then I printed the outfit that has the jean clothing. I cut out shoes, pants, shirt, hat.  Then I went into the seasonal clothes and printed out the jacket, raincoat, umbrella, and boots.  We will discuss how important all these clothes are and how they keep us modest and protect us from the sun and rain etc.....

Sunbeam Letter for Lesson 32 by Cynthia Mikesell - The content of this letter comes almost exclusively from the lesson book.  I just changed the language a bit so that it reads as if the child is telling the parent what they have done in class that day.  (Click here to see all letters written by Cynthia)
