Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

Since last weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving, I helped my kids make some crafts!


I helped them put together these Thankful Turkeys (I used this idea from Meet the Dubiens).
They told me what they are thankful for & I wrote things on the "feathers". Then we used glue & tape to put them together. All you need is: construction paper, toilet paper tube, googly eyes, and glue/tape.



We had a lot of fun putting these together and it was a great way to sit down with my kids and talk about our blessings. 




They also made the classic hand print turkeys! They mailed these to grandparents & family members who live far away.




Check out more fun ideas for Thanksgiving on my Thanksgiving Pinterest Board.

  1. Hi! These crafts brought back memories for me when my kids were little. Now my youngest has a 6 month old - so soon I will be doing it all over again!

    Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving - I have awhile til we celebrate here. Have to get ready for it!

    Hope you will visit my blog as well!
