Last Minute Craft Ideas for Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is only days away. DAYS! But, there's still plenty of time to make some Indians and Pilgrims or re-enact the Mayflower. Today, I have a bunch of great crafts that you can make with your kids just in time for Turkey Day!
/1/ Family of Indians - How much fun would it be to put your head on little Indian bodies? Ooh, you could use these as place cards at your Thanksgiving table! How cute would that be?
/2/ Thankful Pumpkin - Cut strips of orange paper, ask the kids what they are most thankful for and create a pumpkin from the strips. During dinner you can talk about all of these things.
/3/ Thankful Tree - Have the kids color this Thankful Tree before your guests arrive. Leave a small basket filled with paper leaves and a marker on a table next to it and have each of your friends and family write what they are thankful for and pin it to the tree.
/4/ Football Turkey - One thing I remember about Thanksgiving as a child was the TV being turned on after dinner. It was always football. These football turkeys are perfect if you're also a football loving family!
/5/ Bubble Wrap Turkey - If you can keep your kids from popping all of the bubbles in the bubble wrap then you'll have bubble wrap turkeys, too!
/6/ Turkey Hand Print Card - These Blessings cards would be a very nice way to tell someone that you're thankful for them. Keep snail mail alive!
/7/ Hand Print Native Americans - I just LOVE hand print crafts! They just might be my favorite craft ever! So, when I found these little Indians I had to share them with you!
/8/ Pilgrim Hand Prints - Teach your children a bit of World History as they create this hand print Mayflower craft. A teaching lesson AND a craft. Win-win!
/9/ Napkin Holder Placecards - You could either use construction paper or recycle paper towel tubes to re-create these Indian and Pilgrim napkin holders.
/10/ Chief Headdress Indian Craft - I've always wanted to make my kids great big Chief Headdresses and build a tee-pee in the backyard for a photoshoot. I'm thinking this tutorial is exactly what I needed to make it happen!
/11/ Printable Coloring Placemat - Do you have a Kids' Table at your Thanksgiving Feast? I bet if these placemats would've been offered when I was a kid I would've been more okay with sitting at a separate table than everyone else.
Will you be making Thanksgiving Crafts with your kids? I'd love to see what you make. Share a link in the comments or tag me on Instagram!
