5 easy Thanksgiving Day crafts for toddlers
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and in the Robertson household, we take turkey time very seriously. To help get in the spirit of the holiday, and add a little seasonal décor to the home, we decided to make a few simple crafts.
All you need for these are some basic supplies from the craft box, and of course, a few tiny hands to help.
A Thankful Tree is a great way for kids to express what they’re thankful for, from their swimming lessons, to their family, and of course, pumpkin pie. All you need to make this tree is: construction paper, a felt pen, cardboard and paint. Just trace your hands and put on your thinking caps.
Painted Hand Turkey
The painted hand turkey is a classic, and a great piece of art to hang on the fridge, or to use as a Thanksgiving Day dinner invitation. Just grab some paint and a googly eye and you’re all set.
If your toddlers are like mine, they love storing their little toys and treats in cups. We made these cute turkey cups using construction paper, googly eyes, some construction paper and paint. For the feathers, my 3-year-old decided to paint her hand tracings, and we filled the cups with our favourite treats.
Turkey Hand Puppet
Gobble, gobble. My daughter loves putting on puppet shows for people, so her request to make turkey puppets came as no surprise. I traced my own hands to make the puppets a little larger, and then we decorated them for their Thanksgiving debut.
Thanksgiving Day Cards
For these cards, we grabbed some paint and cardboard and let our little fingers fly!
And there you have it, a few super simple Thanksgiving Day crafts you can make with just a handful of supplies. If you have a few of your own favourite crafts, I’d love to hear them. Post your comments below.
Happy crafting! Gobble. gobble.
