4 Fun Thanksgiving Craft Ideas for Your Kids

Holiday crafts can be a great way to decorate your house and get into the holiday spirit. Here are some ideas to try out this season. 

Thanksgiving Placemats

If you’re hosting dinner this year, let your kids decorate Thanksgiving placemats for themselves and their guests. Provide plain white paper or placemat-sized pieces of construction paper, along with markers, crayons, and stickers. It will add a special touch to your dinner table. 

Thanksgiving Wreath

Create a Thanksgiving wreath by cutting out the center of a paper plate. Have your children paint the outer ring with autumn colors or glue on artificial leaves, acorns, and small pumpkins. There is so much room for imagination!

Corn on the Cob Craft

Why not make a craft to symbolize a dinner classic? Cut out a corn shape from yellow construction paper and let your kids glue colorful pom-poms as corn kernels. 

Handprint Turkeys

Handprint turkeys are a classic Thanksgiving craft that will never go out of style. Have your child trace their hand on colorful construction paper, cut it out, and add a beak, wattle, and googly eyes. For a fun twist, have your kids write one thing they’re thankful for on the back of each finger.
