If you look online for free Thanksgiving crafts for kids, you will be able to find all sorts of great ideas. When we did a Google search, we were able to find so many pages of web sites that offer free Thanksgiving crafts for kids that we didn’t even know where to start! Making crafts with your kids is a great way to spend quality time together while putting together some cute decorations for your home at the holidays.
You can make a lot of free Thanksgiving crafts for kids with supplies that won’t cost a lot of money. For example, how about crafting up a paper bag turkey to use as a center piece for your dinner table? All you need is a brown paper bag of any size, scissors, newspaper, glue, a red balloon, some wiggly eyes, two large grocery bags, and a large rubber band.
To make the head, stuff the bottom of the medium-sized bag with balled-up newspaper. Twist the top of the bag to form a long, skinny neck. Glue the wiggly eyes and the balloon wattle onto the face. For the turkey’s body, use one large bag. Snip a hole through the front of the bag an inch from the bottom and fit the neck into it. Then, stuff the body two thirds full with newspaper. Close the top of the bag with the rubber band. To make tail feathers, cut four large half-circles from the remaining bag and then glue them in layers to the back of the body.
Since Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks, have your child make a thankful turkey. We found a great web site offering up free Thanksgiving crafts for kids that had a cute turkey a child of almost any age can make and remember why we celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving. All you need is various colors of construction paper like red, orange, brown, and yellow.
Cut a circle out of the brown construction paper for the turkey’s body. Make some feathers out of the other colors by drawing an elongated oval. Either use the construction paper to glue on a face, or use markers or crayons to make the face. Don’t forget the red wattle! Glue on legs and feet to the bottom. Then, have your child write on the feathers things that they are thankful for. Once all the feathers are filled in, glue them to the body and you are all set with your thankful turkey!
These are only a couple of the free Thanksgiving crafts for kids that we were able to find. Just look around the Internet and see what is available to you. Then start crafting!
