Thanksgiving is the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and spend some time doing arts and crafts with your kids. Whether it’s a simple coloring activity or an elaborate craft involving a ton of supplies, the point is that crafting is a great way to spend quality time with your little ones, to let them express their creativity, and make really neat crafts for family and friends. So here are some great Thanksgiving craft ideas that are perfect for the family!.
A Couple Of Craft Addicts- Turkey Button Cards. This is a sweet and easy idea that your kids can do to send Thanksgiving greeting cards to their friends and family. All you need is some paper and buttons! It would be really cute to use this idea as Thanksgiving invitation cards inviting family members to your big meal.
All You- Felt Turkey’s. Here’s an awesome idea for place settings at your thanksgiving dinner table. These are simple and easy to make and oh-so-cute.
I Love To Create- Gobble Gobble Globes. Have some leftover baby food jars? Use those for the turkey’s body and the rest is a piece of cake! I love how golden and glittery these are!
1 Pure Heart- Corn Wreath. Check out this fun corn wreath for your perfect fall decor! Attach a piece of twine behind it for easy hanging. These would be a unique welcome piece to hang on your front door as guests arrive!
Parents- Pinecone Birds. If your kids love collecting pinecones as much as my son does then this is the perfect craft for them. Turn some of those collected pinecones into cute little birdies! Perfect for putting on display around your house or your thanksgiving table.
Hatter And Hare Events- Turkey Lollipops. This idea was created as a way to keep kids busy during Thanksgiving but I also think it would be fun to craft these beforehand and pass them out on Thanksgiving day to all the kiddos.
Celeste Rockwood- Gumdrop Turkeys. Thank me later because this is going to be the craft of the century. Grab some toothpicks and gumdrops from Target the next time you’re there and you’re set to make these delicious, delightful, and very colorful gumdrop turkeys. Make sure your kids don’t eat all the candy before the turkeys are created!
Make Life Delicious-Sugar Cone Cornucopia. If you’re looking to craft some goodies and presents for friends and family this year, then this is the craft for you. What clever idea to filling up a sugar cone with candy to resemble a cornucopia! Who wouldn’t love to be the recipient of one of these?
Sties Thoughts- Thanksgiving Teepees. If you’re a sweet lover like me, then you’re going to love crafting these sweet teepee cupcakes that are perfect for Thanksgiving! Even better, your kids will probably love making them even more than you!
