Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

 Hello friends and happy Friday! Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, and we are in full Thanksgiving craft mode over here! Don't get me wrong, I love me some Christmas crafts/decorations/activities, but this year I am trying to make sure we don't forget all about Thanksgiving. There are a lot of fun Thanksgiving activities too! The beauty of being a preschool teacher is that we have been making a bunch of crafts at school, which means I have been bringing some craft ideas home to do with my own kiddos too! Or, I have LG make the example craft for my preschoolers. Here's a look at a few of the ones we have already done:

Thanksgiving Name Turkey-- I actually had previously bought a template for the turkey back when I taught 2nd grade because it was used for a writing prompt/craft. I would link it for you but honestly, you don't need to buy a template to make this. You could draw on the construction paper with black marker and have your kiddos cut it out. Or, make something like this example below:

We also made these cute play dough turkeys using some basic craft supplies:

Then somebody got a little silly and made hers extra decorative:

A silly craft with a big cheesy grin. 😍

We made another one that I forgot to take a picture of (oops!) but it was similar to this:

Lily Grace loved making the folded legs. 


Other than those fun projects though, I found some other great ideas on Pinterest to share:

How fun does this cinnamon-scented play-dough look? You could also go on a nature walk beforehand to collect some items to use in the play-dough. 
These also looked simple and fun. 
And then I thought these were cute too! I know my kids would love to play with them:

Thank you for reading along today! I hope you all have a nice weekend and are able to soak up some good family time. 
Today I am linking up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites. See you back here Monday for Not Just a Mom! Our theme is "Internet Made Me Buy It"-- so, basically everything I own haha! If you are a blogger, please link up with us!
