9 Easy Thanksgiving Craft Ideas for Kids

I looked to Pinterest for some great Thanksgiving craft ideas. Here are 9 of my favorites for this year. Most are very kid-friendly, which is great for rainy days and even Thanksgiving day while they may be bored during the cooking hours.

1. Turkey Placeholders

This Thanksgiving craft does not have a link to directions, but I think it’s pretty straightforward. Either buy a little paint jar of gold paint or fill it with gold paint or glitter. Trace hands and make turkey beaks with construction paper and pick up some cute eyes at a craft store. Adding a name to each turkey will make for cute placeholders.

2. Give Thanks Banner

You can find details for this craft at Sugar Bee Crafts. She was inspired by a $22 banner from Pottery Barn and created her own for only $2. Way to save!

3. Turkey Pop

This cute craft is from TippyToes and Tantrums. She notes that this is a craft that is easy for seniors to contribute to the Thanksgiving decor.

4. Leaf Wreath

This is a great craft from Frugal Living NW. In this article, she points out some great crafts you can make with items found at a dollar store.

5. Fall Tree

This is another craft that is not linked to a particular blog, but it is super easy to make with fall-colored paints and a cotton swab. I’m working on this with my kids this week.

6. Gratitude Pumpkins

This craft idea comes from The Joys of Boys. Have children write something they are thankful for in the middle of each of the paper strips. So cute!

7. Handprint Turkey Keepsakes

This craft is from Things to Share and Remember. This is such a nice idea for grandparents, aunts, and uncles to have a keepsake from their young relatives.

8. Turkey Pinecone Craft for Kids

This craft was originally shared on I love that is made with mostly found items and oranges.

9. Thanksgiving Table Cloth or Garland

This craft photo is actually a snippet from a larger Thanksgiving Garland project. I like using this idea for creating a table cloth or covering with the kids. The original project can be found at Crystal & Co.
