We are so excited to celebrate the holiday on Thursday that this week is dedicated to all things Thanksgiving. We are cooking, baking, decorating, and crafting. If you have little ones at home they are more than likely on holiday break or will be soon and that’s why we want to share a few of our favorite Thanksgiving crafts for your family to enjoy!
Classic Turkey Hands - This craft is so special because it captures the size of your little one's hand year after year. The best way to get a good handprint is by using paint or even better stamping ink to really get the definition of the full hand.
Painted Leafs and Pinecone Turkeys - Get outside and enjoy a family walk this week and while you are out and about pick up a handful of your favorite leaves and some pinecones. Take them home and pull out the craft paper and paint to let your little ones make beautiful art to display this holiday. You can paint the leaves and press them to the craft paper or you can paint the leaves to have fun animal faces to represent the season. Get inspired here! To complete the pinecone turkey you will need to cut craft paper in the shape of a turkey tail and attach to the bottom of the pine cone, be sure to lay the pinecone on its side. Another way you can create the tail is by using feathers. You will need to cut out a beak from orange craft paper and then attach eyes to the front of the pinecone! These are perfect to display on your plate as a centerpiece on Thanksgiving.
Gratitude Tree - We absolutely love this craft. It is a tradition you can use year after year. Get a big piece of paper and draw a tree on it. Then cut out leaves from craft paper and give one to each of your family members. Have them write what they are grateful for on a leaf and attach it to the tree. This display is so lovely to look at during the holiday and lets each and everyone showcase why they are thankful!
We are so grateful for each and every one of you and hope you have a fantastic holiday!
