Fun & Easy Thanksgiving Crafts For Kids
Take advantage of those beautiful Fall leaves!
Before you do any Thanksgiving crafts with your kids, send them outside to collect their favorite Fall leaves. The reason is because a lot of these craft ideas feature those leaves–there are just so many fun things you can do with them!
Fall Leaf Art
Use those Fall leaves as the main component in works of art. Fall leaves are easily glued to paper to make a myriad of fun designs. Just let the kids use their imaginations.
For long time preservation of those Fall leaves, let the kids brush their designs with Mod Podge. It dries clear and keeps their artwork pretty and fresh for a long time. The Mod Podge can also be used as the glue to firmly affix the leaves to paper.
Toilet Paper Tube Figures
How adorable are these toilet paper pilgrims? Have the kids make these for your Thanksgiving table. They’ll be thrilled to have their crafts included in the festivities!
Pine Cone Turkeys
We’ve all seen paper turkeys kids make from their own hand prints. Take that craft idea a little further by letting the kids collect pine cones to glue their hand print turkey feathers to.
It’s also fun for the kids to glue craft feathers to a pine cone turkey. Add a pom pom nose and googly eyes for a silly Thanksgiving craft for kids they’ll love to create.
