5 Great Thanksgiving Crafts for Toddlers

Thanksgiving is our next big holiday and Pinterest is overflowing with fun ideas for crafts. Since my toddler is always bouncing off the walls, especially as it’s getting colder outside, I rounded up 5 fun Thanksgiving/Fall crafts we have enjoyed together:

Thanksgiving Chocolate Pilgrim Hats: Fun to make AND super yummy, your toddler will have so much fun helping you make these cookie hats. They are super easy, since frosting is like edible glue, and the supplies you just pick up from the store—no baking required. From Southern Living.

Nature Notecards: Paint a leaf and stick it to construction paper. Then peel it off, leaving a print of the leaf behind. Fold the construction paper in half and use these as cards on Thanksgiving for your kids to list what they are thankful for. From Parenting.com.
