Thanksgiving is one of the most popular American holidays, and is very much a family day. So, BigDIYIdeas wanted to be sure to share with your family some of the very best kids’ crafts – just in time for Thanksgiving that would make your holiday celebration even more fun!
In our collection, you’ll find Thanksgiving day crafts that are ideal for little ones, bigger kids and even teens wouldn’t say “no” to giving them a try. There are also crafts that the entire family can participate in – such as creating a Thanksgiving table centerpiece or a garland to decorate your dining room or living room. We’ve also found some terrific gratitude-themed crafts, especially ideal for this day of giving thanks.
Some of these crafts use finger paint or glue, so it is likely ideal to set up a place to do crafts that is near your Thanksgiving table, but not the table itself, as you’ve probably decorated it for the holiday. No one wants finger paint or sticky glue on their dress clothes they’ve worn for the holidays!
A fun project like a kids’ craft is ideal when you have extended family getting together. Even if the day is a little too cold or rainy and you can’t go outside, you know you will have something that will keep everyone occupied while dinner gets ready.
