Thanksgiving Crafts and Activities

Cranberry Chemistry

  1. Grab some cranberry juice, baking soda, and lemon juice.

  2. Mix the baking soda and cranberry juice and watch your experiment bubble and change color!

  3. Use the lemon juice to revert to the original color.

This craft is simple and easy for your kids to do! Your little scientist will be able to observe crazy bubbles and your mixture changing colors!

Fork Feather Turkey

  1. Make the body of the turkey with brown construction paper.

  2. Dip a plastic fork in paint and let your little one create feathers all around the turkey!

This is a way to allow your children to paint in a more controlled environment. The forks do not create a big mess, and the size of your surface determines the size of your turkey! Be sure to remind younger kids that these forks should not go in their mouths!

Turkey Squishy Bag

  • Insert gel and a turkey craft in a plastic bag and let the sensory fun begin!

This simple activity will keep your children occupied and entertained this fall season. If you do not have access to a turkey craft, you can substitute it with any kind of fall item, like leaves, candy corn, beans, or tea leaves.

Pumpkin Pie Craft

  • Using a paper plate, tissue paper, some cardstock, and cotton balls, create your very own slice of pumpkin pie!

This is an easy and classic craft for you and your child to create together. If this craft was a hit, consider creating an entire Thanksgiving meal with construction paper and nonperishable items around the house.

Feed the Turkey

  1. Turn an empty jar or cup into a turkey.

  2. Feed it using tongs and pom pom balls!

This activity is great for strengthening fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

Pumpkin Pie Alphabet Mats

  • This craft is a great way to incorporate learning letters into a fun Thanksgiving activity! Your child can use cotton balls, play-doh, or anything you have lying around the house.

This activity can also be used with number learning! There are many resources for mats but printing off the alphabet can be a cheaper alternative.
