Let children take the lead and use their imaginations to create their very own turkey. Provide a few materials (paper, crayons, markers, feathers, google eyes, glue, paint, or watercolors) and step back and watch children’s artwork come to life. And because books provide some of the best inspiration for young children, read one of these fabulous turkey picture books beforehand and then use it as a “visual” to inspire kid’s artwork.
Take a Thanksgiving morning family walk around your neighborhood or local park and gather leaves to make your very own autumn leaf wreath.
For families who love family game night, this hilarious Thanksgiving Mad Libs game will have the entire family laughing and having fun.

These healthy, simple, and delicious snacks are perfect for kids to help make and can fill up little tummies before the big Thanksgiving feast.
Turkey tracks are a silly and fun way to make turkey art with kids! It is a super easy and fun way to keep little ones engaged while you are busy in the kitchen.
