40 of the Most Fun Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

From toddler and preschool-age craft ideas to fun DIY crafts for bigger kids.

When it comes to Thanksgiving, your meal menu may be all that’s on your mind, but make sure you (and your little helpers) don’t get stuck all day in the kitchen. Your turkey day should also be about having fun, so plan some Thanksgiving crafts for kids to do, too! From gathering supplies to creating turkey placeholders or handmade banners, any DIY projects you have them do will be a hit this holiday season.

Having Thanksgiving crafts for kids to do won’t only be a way to get their creativity flowing, but it’ll be a great family bonding experience as well. You can even start a tradition of making crafts year that you can continue to do for years to come.
