Easy Thanksgiving Activities & Crafts for Toddlers
Our wonderful Facebook group members shared some of their fun and easy toddler Thanksgiving ideas and they were so good that I had to include them too.
Feed the Turkey Craft
Such a a fun idea - Use tongs (if you want toddler friendly tongs I highly recommend THIS SET - I use these all the time) and transfer pom poms from the container to the bottle that looks like a turkey! This Thanksgiving activity is also great for working on fine motor skills.
Disguise The Turkey
This activity is SO MUCH FUN! It's a great way to keep your toddler entertained on Thanksgiving day. You print out the turkey (get the free printable template HERE) and then use whatever craft items you have to hide the turkey!
Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner Sensory Bin
This super fun Thanksgiving sensory bin was shared in our group by Sabrina and it was so popular! Yes it's a real inflatable turkey and you can get them on Amazon HERE.
Washing the Potatoes for Thanksgiving Dinner
Cate shared this fun idea with us - toddlers love to help so why not give them a fun job like washing the vegetables for Thanksgiving dinner.
Make a Thanksgiving Sensory Bin
Brittany shared her Thanksgiving themed sensory bin with us. She used colored chickpeas but I would reccomend using items that won't pose a choking hazard like cereal or colored rice.
Then add some scoops or cups and you've got yourself a fun toddler sensory bin.
Turkey Cup Bowling
Use paper of plastic cups to make bowling pins! What a fun Thanksgiving day toddler activity idea.
Thanksgiving Table Cloth Coloring
Jessica shared this idea with us. You can buy Thanksgiving themed table cloths that are designed for kids to color in - what a fun idea! You can find similar ones HERE on Amazon.
Go on a Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt
You can get your free printable Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt HERE. Print out the pictures and hide them around the house or in a sensory bin (if you laminate them they hide well in rice or sand).
Canvas Turkey Painting Using Painters Tape
Caitlyn shared her canvas turkey painting with us. She used painters tape to mark out the pattern and then removed it to make the white lines. Doesn't the end result look great?!
Paper Plate Turkey Craft
There are so many fun ways to make turkey crafts (see a huge selection of turkey craft ideas HERE) and we love these ones shared by Laura. What would you use to decorate your turkey?
