For me Thanksgiving is the best holiday to spend time with your children and make awesome crafts that will teach them all about Americas history. From Thanksgiving t-shirts to a full range of handprint and footprint crafts you’ll have a great time making these with kids of all ages!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I’m getting super excited to celebrate! Here at Happiness is Homemade, our readers LOVE our popular series of “Quick & Easy Kids Crafts That Anyone Can Make!” and have been asking me to follow up with more collections of quick and easy kids craft ideas. Today we’re bringing you an all-new group of Quick and Easy Thanksgiving Kids Crafts that take less than 30 minutes to make! They’re perfect for everyone from beginning crafters to experienced makers!
These awesome Thanksgiving-themed crafts don’t require any special tools or skills, so they’re great for parents who don’t consider themselves “crafty.” Everyone can get creative with these simple ideas!
These easy Thanksgiving crafts for kids are just the thing to keep your littlest guests occupied ahead of your family’s feast. Whether you choose to make one of our favorite projects prior to Thanksgiving day or leave a few craft supplies at the kids’ table, you really can’t go wrong with one of these easy projects. But what do glue sticks, sequins, and pony beads have to do with Turkey Day, anyway? Well, each of these crafts is themed in accordance with the holiday, for starters (think: turkey place card holders, scarecrow Mason jars, and pilgrim hat paper cups).
The way we see it though, encouraging your kids to slow down and craft can also be a wonderfully relevant nod to the themes of gratitude, thankfulness, and appreciation. As they string together gratitude bracelets and paint a few cobs of bubble wrap “Indian corn,” they’re also pausing to reflect on the meaning of the holiday itself—and as they grow older, that’s something they’ll cherish just as much as they do your famous pie recipe. So what are you waiting for? Lay down a bit of newspaper, pass out some paint palettes and pipe cleaners, and watch your youngest ones’ eyes light up as they tackle one of these Thanksgiving arts and crafts for kids.
