Thanksgiving is right around the corner. It’s an exciting time for our family and I find that if I plan a few weeks ahead of time, everything runs much smoother. So this year, I’ve rounded up 15 Easy Thanksgiving Kids Activities and Crafts with sensory play, puzzles, name tents, books, and lots of keepsake turkeys.
15 Easy Thanksgiving Kids Activities and Crafts
My blogging friends have linked up toilet paper crafts, coffee filter crafts, a turkey wreath, a holiday acorn pudding, a sensory and play-doh bin, and loads of free printables, including a 20 Pages of fun Thanksgiving Activities for Kids Pack, free puzzles, free book list, free place cards for the Thanksgiving table, and a free “I Spy” game. No matter what your kids are into, this list of fun and free 15 Easy Thanksgiving Kids’ Activities and Crafts is bound to have you covered.
If you visit Family Fun Friday and link up weekly, I am going to change the schedule a bit and start posting first thing Friday mornings. I used to do Thursday afternoons, but changes in my schedule now mean I have to post on Friday mornings (at least more consistently). So I’ll see you then.
