Thanksgiving Crafts for Preschoolers

Do you have a preschool age son or daughter? I would recommend the preschool centre east gwillimbury based on reviews and word of mouth. Are you racking your brain in search of a few Thanksgiving related craft projects that they may want to engage in this year? If so, I’d like to offer up a few suggestions. Here they are:

Thanksgiving Picture Book

In my experience, preschoolers seem to enjoy creating their own Thanksgiving picture books. Therefore, why not give your kids some construction paper and ask them to create a Thanksgiving story based on what they are thankful for? Once they are done, staple their pictures in between two sheets of card stock. Then let them decorate the card stock. Afterward, sit down with your children and ask them to read you their stories.

Turkey Hand Prints

Turkey hand prints is a craft that all of my children completed when they were preschoolers. It is easy, inexpensive and fun. Start the craft project by tracing your child’s hand onto several pieces of colorful construction paper. Then help your child convert his handprints into miniature turkeys. Your child’s thumb will represent the turkey’s head. His or her fingers will represent the turkey’s feathers. My kids liked using crayons and non-toxic paints to decorate their turkeys. Your children might like using those items too.

Pine Cone Turkey

If you have an abundance of pine cones in your backyard, you may also want to think about grabbing a few and making pine cone turkeys with your preschooler. Simply create a series of turkey feathers and a turkey head out of construction paper. Then let the kids decorate them. Once that’s done, glue the turkey’s feathers to one end of the pine cone and the turkey’s head to the other. Afterward, let them make turkey feet out of chenille stems. Attach those to the pine cone as well.

Turkey Napkin Rings

The next time that you finish a roll of paper towels or toilet paper, you may want to save the roll and use it to create turkey napkin rings. Start the project by letting the kids paint the paper rolls. While the paint is drying, ask the kids to make turkey feathers out of construction paper. Once the paint is dry, stand the paper roll upright and let the kids glue the turkey’s feathers to one side of the paper roll. Next, ask them to draw the turkey’s face on the other side of the paper roll with a washable magic marker. When it comes time to set the table for dinner, let them thread the napkins through their homemade turkey napkin rings and place one next to each plate.
