5 Fun Thanksgiving Crafts to Keep Your Kids' Table Happy!!!!

Thanksgiving is here and it’s time to give thanks with all of your loved ones around you, all while gobbling up some delicious food.

While the autumn season is a time for fun and festivity, we all know how frustrating it can be to host a Thanksgiving dinner, especially when it comes to the little ones that have to be kept occupied. Here are a few Thanksgiving crafts that are great for any pre-dinner turkey-day celebration, guaranteed to keep all of the members at the kids’ table (and probably most of the one’s at the adults table too) happy and preoccupied throughout the day.

1.     Handprint turkey

Put together a little craft table and set up painting stations where kids can make hand-print turkeys. They’ll love getting crafty while also getting their hands a little dirty, while parents will love the reminder of how small their tykes’ hands were a few years down the road.
