Enjoy the following Thanksgiving crafts with your children or students to decorate your home, classroom, or Thanksgiving table.
Thanksgiving Napkin Rings
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.
Turkey of Praise Across the Globe
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
Turkey Hand and Foot Print
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.
Hand and Footprint Calendar
Create a Handprint & Footprint Calendar to give as a gift to a loved one. The instructions include examples to make for each month as well as suggested Bible verses that correspond with the prints.
