There are all sorts of web sites that have ideas for Thanksgiving crafts for kids to make. When you use the Internet to find information, you will soon see that you have many choices available to you – especially when looking for Thanksgiving crafts for kids to make. You can spend some amazing quality time with your child when you craft together, so gather up a few easily found supplies and spend some time with them making memories and keepsakes. Here are a Thanksgiving crafts for kids to make we are fond of.
Have your child make a thankful wreath to celebrate the season. Start with a paper plate and cut out a half circle from the center of it. Under the horizontal cut, write the words “I Am Thankful For…” Then draw some leaf shapes on construction paper and cut them out. Have your child write down things that they are giving thanks for on this Thanksgiving Day and then glue the leaves around the plate covering it like a wreath. Hang the wreath on your door or someplace where it is clearly visible so your child remembers how blessed he or she is.
Another of the cute Thanksgiving crafts for kids to make we were able to find are edible turkeys. To make one turkey, you need two Double Stuff Oreo cookies, some candy corn and a chocolate covered raisin (Raisinettes). Open one of the Oreos. The side with the filling will be the base of the turkey. Eat the other part! Take the other cookie and stand it upright in the filling. Stick pieces of candy corn in the filling of the upright cookie for feathers and place the raisin in front of the body for the turkey’s head. This is especially cute if you use the colored Oreos that come out around Halloween time!
Have your child make placemats that can decorate your Thanksgiving dinner table. All you need is a piece of construction paper or poster board cut into a rectangular shape and markers or crayons. Then can make the side view of a turkey by tracing their hand with fingers splayed. The thumb is the turkey’s head and the rest of the fingers being the feathers. Have them draw on a face, legs, and feet and then decorate as they want.
These are only a few of the many Thanksgiving crafts for kids to make that we were able to find. Use your own imagination and creativity to come up with some Thanksgiving crafts for kids to make of your own and then enjoy your crafting time with them!
