Thanksgiving Activities for Kids

Fall is drawing to a close, and with Christmas up ahead {and many people getting ready earlier and earlier each year}, Thanksgiving doesn’t always seem to get the attention it deserves except on the actual big day.

Today, I’ve rounded up a whole bunch of Thanksgiving Activities for Kids that are perfect for the weeks before Thanksgiving or even to keep the kids busy on turkey day itself.

There are crafts, printables, and sensory activities for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners featuring turkeys, corn, pumpkins, and more! They’re quick, simple, and fun so as to not add any extra pressure during a busy time.


Check out all of the 50+ Thanksgiving Activities for Kids on Simple Fun for Kids! Sensory activities for toddlers, handprint crafts, printables for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and elementary students, and more!
