We are so excited to share these Thanksgiving craft ideas with you. These are great ways to teach your child about Thanksgiving and keep them busy in a festive way.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year – I think an attitude of gratefulness is so important to cultivate in ourselves and our kiddos. Here are just a few of the craft activities I hope to do soon with my kiddos.
Turkey with Thankful Feathers
This turkey with thankful feathers is simple to make and only requires construction paper, markers, and glue. It’s a great way to teach children about the different blessings in their lives.
This Thanksgiving Tree is such a great family activity that could quickly become a yearly Thanksgiving tradition. Add leaves to your tree with different things that you are thankful for.
Handprint Turkey Lunch Bag
Look how cute this Handprint Turkey Lunch bag is. It is simple and great and can be a festive way to send your child lunch!
Make a Thanksgiving Wreath out of painted clothespins. Label each “pin” with something you have been blessed with. It is a great way to countdown to Thanksgiving.
Toilet Paper Roll Turkey
Toilet Paper Roll Turkey is a craft kids can make easily. This Turkey is that simple to make. Fill each finger with something you are grateful for.
Dipping your own candles will give you plenty of time to discuss with your kids different things that you both are thankful for. See if you can come up with something you are thankful for each time you “dip” – and they double as great tabletop decorations!
Thankful Paper Chain
I am Thankful Paper Chain. These are simple enough for even the youngest tykes to participate! I think it would be a fun icebreaker activity. Each day add a chain of what you’re thankful for.
