Planning the perfect Thanksgiving dinner with your loved ones can be a challenge, to say the least. Hosting a memorable party requires awesome food and entertainment for everybody, and that includes the kids. What better way to keep them entertained than having fun with easy craft projects they can later show to their friends!
Make a ‘Give Thanks’ Craft Corner
How about dedicating a special corner for the kids to get crafty? The project itself could be setting up a corner and decorating it with colored and signed “give thanks’ cut-outs or just use it to display their creations to everyone at the party. Stack crayons, markers, and pencils together with colored paper and small decorative bits, and let them have fun with it. Don’t forget to take loads of pictures in the process!
Thanksgiving Turkey Mason Jar
Who doesn’t like candy or jars, or both? Exactly! The little ones can make an adorable turkey mason jar and fill it with their favorite candy. All you’ll need are mini canning jars or larger ones, paper, and small decorations like eyes, noses, etc. Side idea: they can use these jars for Halloween, too!
Grateful Thanksgiving Tree
Encourage your kids and guests to get in the Thanksgiving spirit with this amazing craft idea. Include everyone in the process and take pictures with the finished tree. You can make it a tradition to expand the tree every year and add more items to it!
Make a Pumpkin Turkey
This project is definitely for older kids as it requires working with glue and scissors to get the feet and head shape of the turkey right. Or, you can cut them out in advance to make it easier for them. Let them go out in the yard to find the perfect fall leaves for the tail. And, of course, you’ll need to supply the pumpkins!
