5 Fun Thanksgiving Crafts For Kids

by Tina @ Life Without Pink on November 16, 2011

The crisp air, beautiful colors of the leaves, and wearing boots and sweaters – what’s not to love about Fall?!

This year for Thanksgiving, I’ve decided to make a few crafts with my boys. They are at a perfect age and loving getting their hands dirty. 

I’m not great at coming up with ideas on my own, so I searched the Internet and found a few fun crafts we’ll be trying out.

Here are 5 Fun Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids:

Turkey Napkin Holders

I’m hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year and plan on making this cute little craft with the boys to put at each place setting. It will act as both a table decoration and keepsake!

Family Handprint Turkey

I love any craft that has to do with my boys’ hand prints. It’s a great way to “capture” how tiny their hands were and how much they grow from year to year.

Pine Cone Turkeys

I have a ton of pine cones in our backyard – isn’t this craft the cutest?

Thankful Tree

Every year at Thanksgiving dinner, we each take a few minutes to share what we are thankful for.

This year I wanted to create a “Thankful Tree” and I thought this was perfect! I plan on making this and keeping it in our foyer throughout the holidays.

Each time I pass by, I hope it reminds me of how blessed we are.

Fingerprint Place Cards

Another fingerprint project and this one I think is easy enough for me to handle. I plan on making one for each of the Grandparents! Shhhh!

You can click on the links above to find the full instructions on how to make each craft.

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving craft to do with your children?

I love the Thankful Tree! I’ve been seeing them around quite bit on Pinterest. Maybe I’ll get the girls to help make one this year!

Those are so cute! I’m trying to teach my son about Thanksgiving and wanted to do the handprint turkey but he is just not having it. I might have to do something easier.
