Fun Thanksgiving ideas for the family

I am a huge Pinterest lover. I go on there several times a week searching for recipes, organizing ideas and things for my kids to do.

With Thanksgiving coming next week, I thought I’d share some of these great craft ideas that I’ve Pinned for the kids to do while they are off school!

Easy Indian Corn. I did this with my 3 yr old daughter a few weeks ago. I cut out the shapes and put the glue on the yellow portion. She glued the Fruit Loops on herself.

Thanksgiving Cornucopia mix. I really love this website, Cookies and Cups. There are so many delicious ideas! This snack mix is perfect for treats in classrooms or to pass out to family when they come over for dinner.

Adorable Hand Turkey Family. What a great idea! Something for the entire family to do together, and something to cherish and look back on year after year!

Hands and Foot turkey. There are actually a few Thanksgiving crafts on this website, but this turkey one is just too cute!!

Christian Preschool Printables has a bunch of different Thanksgiving ideas on their site.

For little ones who are preschool age, create this hand print turkey and Indian picture…complete with an adorable little poem!

I remember when I was younger. I would always take some paper and make place mats for everyone who was coming over for the holidays. Babble has a bunch of ideas for nice Thanksgiving gifts and crafts for kids as well as adults to do. This is a great idea to get older kids involved. Have them make woven placemats!

Fun craft ideas for the kids table!

Adorable printables for the bottoms of Hershey Kisses. Glue them on to the bottoms, toss in a clear bag and tie with raffia. Super cute, super easy!

I love love love the candle holder centerpiece here with the cranberries and the pillar candle. So simple and pretty!

I hope this has given you some ideas for ways to keep your kids occupied next week. Have them help you decorate or make little gifts for the guests you may have coming over, or for whoever’s house you may be traveling to!

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!!
