November is here which means Thanksgiving day is coming up! I love Thanksgiving, don’t you? That is why I came up with this list of my favorite 18 Thanksgiving day crafts for kids.
I have so many fond memories of sharing epic meals with the people most important to me, reflecting on all we have to be grateful for.
Now that my older son is in preschool and is at an age where he is full of questions and loves to draw and make things, I have been looking up various Thanksgiving crafts for kids that we can do together.
I’m hoping to use some of these projects as a way to teach him about the meaning of Thanksgiving, gratitude and to build some special memories.
I love crafts and making things with my hands, I am looking forward to sharing this joy with my son. I decided to do a round up post of all of the best Thanksgiving Day crafts for kids that I find to share with you all l. A bonus is that these Thanksgiving crafts for Kids can be used for your Thanksgiving day decor once they are completed.
So, I hope you enjoy this post and find one or two projects that you might like to try with your kids.
