It has finally started to feel like fall here in the Midwest and I couldn’t be happier! The cold, brisk weather isn’t the most ideal for some people but for me, there is nothing better!
I love stepping outside to feel that cold crisp air that nips at your nose. Plus the cold air means the holiday crafts are near. You’ll love these Thanksgiving crafts we’ve compiled for you!
In our house, decorating for holidays is a huge part of the season and I love to use things we make ourselves as a large part of our decorations. Each year I seek out new and fun Thanksgiving crafts to try out and we always have so much fun making new creations!
This year, I have decided to share with you a list of some adorable and easy Thanksgiving crafts for kids! These are so much fun to make and they are perfect for placing around the home to add to that beautiful Thanksgiving décor! We also love to surprise grandparents and aunts/uncles with handmade gifts and these are great for that!

This sweet little Tom Turkey is telling us all about the reasons we should be thankful for the season! After all, while Pumpkin Pie and football are pretty great, it’s important to remember our families, friends, and other greatest blessings at this time of year.
Tie-Dye Thanksgiving Craft
This is such an easy craft for kids but will look beautiful hanging on the wall surrounded by all of your other Thanksgiving décor! I love the vibrant colors and how they seem to melt together to make this beautiful artwork.
If you love the idea of crafting with the kids but just aren’t very good with the DIY stuff, I HIGHLY recommend this affordable little kit on Amazon. We buy stuff like this all of the time and have so much fun!
…make it a point in your home to truly embrace the reason for this Holiday. Enjoy making these fun crafts and spending time together with your littles! So often, we get caught up in the food, the decorations, and thinking ahead to the shopping and lights and presents.
As parents, if we don’t do our part to instill the true values of the holidays in our children, we can’t expect them to understand the importance.
