Three Easy Thanksgiving Crafts To Do With Your Kids

Rachel Jenkins November 3, 2017 November 3rd, 2017

Since cold weather usually accompanies this time of year, it’s the perfect time to stay indoors and craft with the kids. We’ve found 3 easy and fun Thanksgiving crafts to do with your kiddos on a cool and crisp fall day.

1. Homemade Pumpkin Pie 

This pumpkin-y craft is so fun, it’s almost good enough to eat.

What you’ll need:

  • Paper plate
  • Orange Tissue Paper
  • Brown Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • 1-2 Cotton Balls

Cut the paper plate into the shape of a pizza. Aka, a triangle. Next, cut both the orange tissue paper and brown paper into small squares.

Put a small dot of glue on the back on the orange tissue paper squares and press onto the plate. Repeat this until the entire flat part of the plate is covered in orange. Staple the brown “crust” around the curved top of the plate, and allow everything to dry.

Lastly, glue cotton balls to the middle of the pie for whipped cream, and voila! You’re done!

2. Hand Print Turkey

This easy turkey creation is perfect for the Thanksgiving season.

What you’ll need:

  • Construction Paper
  • Kids Paint
  • Googly Eye
  • Crayons

A lot of creative freedom can be used for this project. You can use whatever type of paint and paper you want, and you can even add additional flourish! To start, dip your thumb and the palm of your hand in brown paint. Before placing hand on the paper, dip your fingers in various colors for the turkey feathers.

Next, spread out your fingers and place hand firmly on the page. Be careful not to move your hand too much as it can cause the paint to smear. Remove hand and allow to dry.

Lastly, add beak, legs, and glue on the eye to add the finishing touch.

3. Fall Leaf Painting

It’s getting a bit colder outside and the leaves are falling. Why not use them for this fun fall time craft?

What you’ll need: 

  • Kids Paint
  • Construction Paper
  • Tape
  • Leaves

Make sure to set up shop for this craft in an area, (and with clothes) you don’t care if things get a little dirty.

First, loop pieces of tape and stick to the back of leaves. Place on the paper anywhere you want, it’s ok if they overlap or if they are spread far apart, it’s completely up to you. Now it’s time to get painting.

You can paint around the leaves, or go all out and paint the whole thing. However, just remember to allow paint to dry before taking off the leaves.
