Whether you want to make a keepsake like a handprint turkey or something that’ll just keep the kids entertained for a few hours, these fun turkey crafts for kids are perfect! All of these Thanksgiving crafts take only a few supplies and just minutes to make, perfect for some Thanksgiving fun!
As my boys get older, they’re getting more into making things, like this ghost craft we did for Halloween that my younger son just loved helping with.
I’ve found that simple crafts are best because neither of them really have a long attention span when it comes to complicated crafts. And since we are at home for Thanksgiving this year AND the boys are out of school, I thought I’d come up with some Thanksgiving crafts for kids that we can do during that time.
And of course, I’m sharing them with you!
I searched Google, Facebook, Pinterest, and even TikTok (do you follow me there – if not, you should @playpartyplan) to find the best Thanksgiving crafts out there! These are simple, cute, and ones that kids will actually enjoy making.
