Every year around the beginning of November, a plea goes out from parents and teachers everywhere saying “I need Thanksgiving arts and crafts project for kids!” Crafts are a big thing in the classroom, and parents want to enjoy spending some quality time with their child making cute decorations for the Thanksgiving holiday. So, if you’ve found yourself saying “I need Thanksgiving arts and crafts project for kids”, never fear, we are here to help! Here are a few ideas:
This project is easy for even young children and it looks great when it is hung on a window where sun can shine through it. We present to you stained glass turkeys for your first Thanksgiving arts and crafts project. You will need brown paint, a paper plate, brown, orange, and red construction paper, tissue paper or cellophane, and glue.
Cut five or six large feathers from the brown construction paper and about one inch from the edge, cut out the inside of the feather. Apply glue around the edge of the feather and then lay on top of the tissue paper or cellophane. Trim around the edges. Paint the paper plate brown and attach the turkey feathers. You can either draw on a face or cut out the face parts from construction paper.
You may want to also make a craft commemorating the Native Americans and Pilgrims. After all, the holiday centers on their meeting and making peace over a feast. This is another easy craft project that just requires paint and paper. For the Native American paint the palm of the hand with a med brown paint (or any color you want.) and paint each finger a different color. Press on the paper. The use a paint brush and any color paint to ad the head band just below the feathers. For the Pilgrim paint the palm of the hand light brown and the middle three fingers black. Use a paint brush to add a black line of paint for the hat brim. After the paint is dry, have your child add the facial features. These make great place-mats for Thanksgiving dinner too!
