With Halloween over, it’s time to start preparing for Thanksgiving. Bring on all the Turkey Crafts!
I’m constantly looking for ways to celebrate the holidays with my girls and have found that crafting and baking are avenues we all enjoy.
This year I collected (from around the web….thank you Pinterest) a BUNCH of Thanksgiving Crafts for us to do together.
I assembled both craft and treat ideas and thought I would share what I found! All ideas come with complete tutorials (click on the links) and many have free printables.
How cute would this little gobbler be on your Thanksgiving place settings this year?
Made with just cardboard and yard, your kids can make them for you! Add your own colorful ribbon to match your tablescape.
Brown Yarn, Googly Eyes, Clothespins, Thanksgiving Ribbon, Hot Glue Gun, Cardboard Sheets
These darling little fry boxes are perfect for your holiday kids table.
Each child can have their box, filled to the brim with crayons to help them color Turkey Color Sheets or a Thanksgiving-themed printable tablecloth.
They are easily created with fry boxes and a free printable!

How darling would these Reece’s Turkeys be as Thanksgiving Dinner party favors?
I can just see guests reactions to receiving these cute little guys onÂ theirÂ wayÂ outÂ fromÂ a memorableÂ dinner.
They are the perfect send-off! They’re also perfect for preschool Thanksgiving parties, craft nights and Reeces lovers!

These little turkeys are the perfect craft for your elementary and middle-school aged children. They can be made with a Cricut Machine or can be cut out with fabric scissors.
Each turkey can take on it’s on personality with the use of different colors and shapes!

These cute Turkey treats are for all you teachers! How cute would it be to give your cute students one of these Turkey Pops on their way out the door to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday?
They can easily be made in bulk by creating a simple assembly line!

The few days before Thanksgiving, my kids are typically anxious and bored from being out of school for a few days. These turkey pretzels are a great activity to quell their boredom and get them excited for the holiday!
Plus it gets your children practicing being in the kitchen without making too much of a mess! My girls LOVE working with the melted chocolate and creating unique little turkeys for each of our Thanksgiving guests.
