We have previously shared some fun Turkey Crafts for Kids! Though we love Turkey Thanksgiving Crafts, we thought it would be great to expand our Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids ideas to include other ideas too – many leaf crafts make wonderful Thanksgiving Decorations and of course you need a Pilgrim Craft or two too. So today we have a lovely set of craft ideas for kids, that we think are perfect for Thanksgiving – be it decorating for thanksgiving, creating table settings or making Thanksgiving Hostess gifts. Some ideas are perfect for Thanksgiving classroom ideas too!! You may also like to browse our DIY Fall Garland ideas – many of which would be perfect for Thanksgiving, as well as our Fall Crafts for Kids!
