I always loved watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving as a child. And, I think it’s even more fun when you get to introduce your kids to the cartoons that you loved during childhood and watch them develop a fondness for them, also. Now, my kid is OBSESSED with Charlie Brown.
For some reason, I loved the part where they made the popcorn in A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and it’s one of those things that always stuck with me. (Remember Snoopy with his little chef’s hat and how mad Peppermint Patty got when she realized that they weren’t having a real Thanksgiving meal?) And then I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to watch the cartoon and eat the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving meal with my kid? (I mean, what kid doesn’t love to have treats for lunch?)
So, a couple of years ago we did just that and it was a HUGE hit. This is a fun party that you can have for homeschool co-op or a homeschool meet-up, too!
