Thanksgiving Craft Idea: Turkey Finger painting
Let’s start simple. Finger painting is always a hit with kids craft projects. There are many ways to use finger painting or hand painting to create thanksgiving kids art projects. You could paint their entire hand to make the fingers look like features and the thumbs as the beak.
Or you could only paint finger for feathers and then use paper crafts for the body of the turkey. So many fun options!
Painted Pinecone Turkeys Thanksgiving Kids Crafts Idea
Have your kids collect some pinecones outside as a way to get them involved and burn some energy. Collect some pinecones from outside and paint them in different colors. Then, glue on some paper or felt feathers (or whatever you have handy) and a head. You can also add googly eyes and a beak if you’re up for it for this thanksgiving kids craft.
Thanksgiving Themed Treat Buckets for Kids:
Make some cute treat buckets for your kids to enjoy on Thanksgiving. You can use paper cups, tin cans, or plastic containers and decorate them with paper, stickers, or paint. Fill them with candy, popcorn, or other snacks.
Thanksgiving Turkey Leaf Kids Craft:
Another chance to send them outside. Task them with gathering a bunch of colorful leaves to glue them onto a paper plate to make the turkey feathers. Then, add a paper head, beak, wattle, and eyes. You can also add some glitter or sequins for some sparkle if that suits your audience.
DIY Paper Plate Turkey Thanksgiving Craft:
My last idea here is to cut out a paper plate in half and paint it in a brown color. Then, cut out some colorful paper feathers and glue them onto the back of the plate. Add a paper head, beak, wattle, and eyes to finish the turkey.
I hope these DIY thanksgiving kids crafts ideas keep your kiddos busy this fall as you prepare bake/fry/smoke that turkey this year.
