Enjoy the following Thanksgiving crafts with your children or students to decorate your home, classroom, or Thanksgiving table.
Create napkin rings to add to the Thanksgiving meal. Print the Napkin Ring printable. Cut apart. For several uses, glue to toilet paper rolls cut to size and place around a rolled napkin. Or, tape around a rolled napkin. Each printable will make six different designs.
Cut out several feathers and mail to family members. Include instructions for them to write what they are thankful for and mail back to you. Adding a turkey body, collect all of the feathers and assemble together. This is a great activity for those who are unable to get together with family for Thanksgiving. Idea from Cindy at FamilyFun.com
Drawing around a child's hand or dipping it into paint. Add eyes and a mouth to the "thumb".
Add this poem (Original Source Unknown):
This isn't just a turkey,
As anyone can see.
I made it with my hand,
That is a part of me.
It comes with lots of love
Especially to say,
I hope you have a very happy
Make one foot print and at least five handprints. Cut out and glue to a piece of paper. Add eyes, a nose, and feet to the turkey.
