I love that it requires few supplies. It is fairly easy to make and a great way to keep kids busy while you a preparing your Thanksgiving dinner. If you’re not into saving messy Popsicle sticks, you can grab a ton of crafting sticks (seriously, like 1,000!) for under $5 on Amazon on sale right now.
This Thanksgiving craft for kids is made with paper plates. I love the way the pain looks like real wood, don’t you?
This is the cutest hat I have ever seen. Dogs celebrate Thanksgiving with us too. They are part of the family. The kids will love crafting your pooch a little hat!
Your kids will love making fun little construction paper tee pees for their favorite small play figures. These can also double as party hats! Again, the supplies are super simple and inexpensive.
Thanksgiving and pumpkins go hand in hand. Make this decorative pumpkin with pieces of scrap paper and other elements you likely have around the house. Aren’t they gorgeous?
This is another idea that’s super inexpensive yet really beautiful! Have your kids make a bunch to hang on your mantle or decorate the table with. You could ask them to make different colors for each guest and use them as place cards. Just write the guest’s name on the back!
