I adore these 25 Easy Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids! With how busy the Thanksgiving holiday can get, I love to have a variety of kids crafts that children can do during the week leading up to Thanksgiving since school is out all week. Simple activities and crafts are a fantastic way to keep kids occupied and engaged while they wait for Thanksgiving Dinner to be served. I also grab a few of these Thanksgiving Books for Kids to mix things up and keep them entertained.
We have had so much fun playing around with some of the crafts on this list! My girls had a blast coming up with notes to include in their gratitude journals and absolutely adored making little Pilgrim Hats to store their crayons. I loved watching them explore and express their creativity!
No matter the age or stage of your child you are bound to find a craft they will love below!
