Thanksgiving is finally almost here. It’s a great time to break out the crafting supplies and get to crafting. If you’re short on Thanksgiving craft ideas, check these ones out.
Did you know that pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween, they’re for Thanksgiving too. For a little more of an elegant craft, try painting pumpkins for Thanksgiving. This is a fun craft that can be done by people of all ages! Get creative with the them and show us your painted pumpkins.
When it comes to Thanksgiving, there’s always something you can make a turkey out of. Whether it’s a toilet paper roll and construction paper or a turkey made out of a paper plate, your craft options are endless. You could have a day planned to just create turkeys out of random stuff in your home. You can then display these turkeys around your home on Thanksgiving Day!
Another great Thanksgiving craft that you can do this year is known as a thankful pie. Using brown construction paper, create something that closely resembles a pie. You will then write everything you’re thankful for right on the pie!
Thanksgiving Chalk Board
This is a fun one! Find a spot in your house that you can paint with chalkboard paint. If you don’t have a place in your house that you’re able to do this, choose an old piece of wood or something that you can add the paint to. Then spend time writing what you’re thankful for! This is something the whole family can do and enjoy at the same time.
One of the most fun things to do around Thanksgiving is to play with your food. You can create so many different food crafts for Thanksgiving. If you need an idea, grab some sugar cookies, and use candy corn for the feathers. You will then create a face using icing and M&Ms.
Indian Corn is my all time favorite!
Indian Corn Craft for Kids
Wood craft sticks
Yellow craft paint
Assorted fall colored crafting pom poms
Hot glue, glue gun
1. Begin by applying two coats of yellow craft paint to the wood craft stick. Allow it to dry thoroughly.
2. Add dabs of glue to the back of the crafting pom poms. Start gluing them to the wood craft stick so they look like corn kernels. Create a line of 5-7 pom poms. Allow to dry.
3. Cut out a strip of green craft felt. Fold it into a “V” and glue it to the back of your craft stick.
4. Once the green felt is dry and the pom poms are in place, your Indian Corn Craft can now be displayed. Stick them in a sensory bin or display them in a flower pot for a fun look.
If you’re trying to create a fun Thanksgiving craft for everyone to do for the holidays, go for it. Don’t get caught up in the difficult of it, just have fun!
