Printable Thanksgiving Activities:
  • Thanksgiving Printables for Kids, from Natural Beach Living: This is a great assortment of coloring pages and worksheet/activities for all ages.
  • Thanksgiving I SPY game, from Live, Laugh, Rowe: My preschooler would especially love this. It’s perfect for younger dinner guests!
  • Gratitude Cootie Catcher, from Bren Did: Everyone loves a cootie catcher, and this one’s got a great Thanksgiving theme.
Thanksgiving Games:
  • Thanksgiving Charades, from I Can Teach My Child: This is a great game for the entire family to play. I love playing games that don’t have complicated rules.
  • Turkey Hunt, from Happy Home Fairy: Genius! This is a great way to get the kids (even the big ones!) outdoors for a little fresh air before or after dinner.
  • Stuff the Turkey, from Kid Friendly Things to Do: Of course the kids will love this game, but we have a couple uncles in our family that I can see getting pretty competitive with this game. Step aside, kids. This Thanksgiving activity is for the big guys!
  • Thanksgiving Bingo, from Making Friends: This bingo printable comes with a bunch of different bingo cards, so there’s enough variety for the whole family to play. Bonus points for using candy corn as the bingo markers!
  • Roll a Turkey, from Inspiration Made Simple: Sneak a little learning into your Thanksgiving day with this fun Thanksgiving activity for younger grades + preschoolers.
Thanksgiving Crafts:
  • Paper Bag Turkeys, from Crafty Morning: You probably don’t even need to buy anything for this Thanksgiving activity. Just grab a couple lunch bags from the pantry and some colorful feathers or papers and you’re good to go!
  • Play Dough Turkeys, from Mama, Papa, Bubba: Play Doh is always a hit, and these turkeys are super cute!
  • Construction Paper Turkey, from Twitchettes: My daughter and I made these the other day. They were super easy and so cute when we were finished!
  • Elbow Macaroni Turkey craft, from I Heart Crafty Things: So cute! This one might take a little preparation ahead of time, but the result is well worth it.
  • Apple Turkey Craft, from I Heart Crafty Things: What’s better than a craft? A craft project you can eat, of course! These adorable apple turkeys would be a welcome addition to any kids’ table at my house.
