Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s time to celebrate and be thankful! Here is a roundup of all of my favorite Thanksgiving activities to do, make, and talk about with the kids. It is the perfect time of year to slow down and spend some quality time talking with your kids about being thankful each and every day. From a tree that helps kids talk about what they are thankful for each day, to a creative turkey day centerpiece that lets the kids get crafty at the dinning room table – there is a project here that is bound to thrill and delight you and your kiddos!
We are less than a week from Thanksgiving and at our house it is all about turkeys this year. After reading a dozen books from the library and at school about turkeys, the kids are excited to celebrate Thanksgiving with our families. We spent a lot of time this month talking about the things, and people that we are thankful for and really try to help the kids see this holiday as a chance to give thanks for what they have. Here is a cute turkey craft that does just that. A paper plate and construction paper transform into a cute way to display what the kids are thankful for.
I love the idea of letting the kids help create things that will decorate our home for the Holidays. This Thanksgiving the kids and I have been geared up and created three great turkey crafts to help deck out our house for turkey day. Most of our Thanksgiving activities are centered around conversations about being thankful and counting our blessings. This particular project is more for the fun of adding some cute turkeys to our fall decor in our house. This simple kids craft is fun to make, keeps the kids busy, and allows them to help decorate for Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is just two weeks away and soon tables all over the country will be filled with family, food, and memorable moments. Make the kid’s table extra special with these adorable little turkey centerpieces. They are simple to make and offer the kids a great activity while they visit with their cousins at dinner. Cover the table in plain wrapping paper, set these turkey marker holders in the center and see what the kid’s in your family are thankful for this year.
