17 Cute Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

By  | Last Updated:  


It’s only a matter of days until Thanksgiving is here! Whether you’re entertaining with a Thanksgiving dinner party or you just want to add Thanksgiving decorations around the house, I’ve found some great ideas that will get the kids involved in creating new holiday crafts.

I think the Dish Brush Turkey Craft, Pinecone Turkeys, Maple Leaf Turkey, Candy Corn Turkey, and Paper Bag Turkeys are perfect for younger boys. Older kids will love creating the Paper Pumpkins, Pom-pom Turkeys, Felt and Paper Twist Door Turkey, and Turkey Placecard Holders. Be sure to also check out the Thom the Turkey Tulle Wreath Tutorial, Easy Turkey Pinecone, Turkey Treats, Pop Can Tab Turkey, Thanksgiving Turkey Placecards, and Leaf Feather Turkeys, too. And for all of you glitter-deprived moms of boys, look at the Turkey Glitter Globes and Turkey Napkin Rings—such fun ideas!
