Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

The way we see it through, encouraging your kids to slow down, and craft can also be a wonderfully relevant nod to the themes of gratitude, being thankful, and knowing how blessed you are.

Pumpkin Mason Jars

Make the most out of empty mason jars (or any glass jars, really) by painting them in shades of orange and topping them with a stem and leaves.

Wall of Blessings

Before you get out the Christmas advent calendar, try this day-counting ritual. Instead of giving gifts (December will be here soon!), ask kids to write down something they’re grateful for each day.

Mason Jar Turkey

A mason jar makes an appearance in yet another DIY. This time, turn it into a turkey, complete with colored popsicle sticks as feathers.

Thanksgiving Turkey Place Card Holder

Turkeys don’t have to be brown and beige and drab all over, you know! Here, they’re livened up with the help of some acrylic craft paints—and they’ll get admired by all your guests come Thanksgiving day.

Grateful Thanksgiving Tree

Encourage your kids to get in the Thanksgiving spirit! This project requires everyone involved to express what they’re grateful for this year.
