Thanksgiving Craft Ideas and Fun Activities for Kids

Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful time for spending time and reconnecting with family and friends – especially when those loved ones don’t live close to you. However, with a big menu comes a lot of prep time in the kitchen for us grown-ups, which tends to mean a LOT of wait time for the kids. I love to come prepared with craft activities for the little ones at our table – do you? This week’s roundup features some ideas that can be made day of or presented as a way to make dinnertime seem not so far away.

 

Washi Tape Thankful Tree

This tree, full of places to leave messages of thanks, would look adorable as a Thanksgiving centerpiece or on display in your house to inspire your family. Get the how-to from Washi Tape Crafts.

 

3D Paper Pumpkin

Pumpkins are good for Thanksgiving, too! Use up the last of fall-themed papers in the craft closet by making this 3D paper pumpkin, by way of Crafts by Amanda.

 

Leaf Turkey Craft for Kids

Don’t rake those leaves too quickly! Make sure to save a few to make colorful turkey crafts, like this leaf turkey from Crafty Morning.

 

DIY Thanksgiving Pilgrim Candy Jar

For a sweet fix after Thanksgiving dinner, make sure to have a pilgrim candy jar on hand. The team at CandyStore.com has created this easy project over on their blog. When it’s time for a treat, just lift off the pilgrim hat and dig in.
