Toddler Friendly Thanksgiving Crafts

Share this post

Little Lady and I were busy this week making turkeys.  She loves to help me decorate our home for the holidays but let’s be honest a 2-year-old can only be so helpful.  By involving her in her own projects I can keep her away from the glass and other not so kid friendly items and she can proudly display her works of art around the house.  Take a look at what we made and a roundup of other toddler thanksgiving crafts.

Toddler Friendly #Thanksgiving Crafts

Toddler Footprint Turkey Craft

toddler handprint turkey craft

These hand and foot print crafts were a blast to make.  I get to remember how little she was and she loved coloring and gluing on the feathers.

Turkey cookies

I’ve made these turkey cookies for years, but this was the first time little lady helped.  You need a chocolate star, peanut butter cup (or cordial cherry) candy corn, and fudge striped cookie.  Just glue it together with melted chocolate.  These are lots of fun to make with kids on Thanksgiving then snack on after our meal.

Check out these other inspiring projects:

Fingerprint Turkey Cards

This fingerprint turkey from Cards by CG is a great idea.  What toddler doesn’t love paint!

Easy Clothespin Turkey Craft #Thanksgiving

Clothespin Turkey from Formula Mom

Easy Turkey Craft using tissue paper and glue from Happy Home Fairy.

Spiral Noodle Turkey featured on Bless This Mess

Thanksgiving kids craft Fruit Loops Turkey

Fruit Loop Turkey from Putti’s World. To make this toddler friendly I could draw a turkey and color the features then she could match the fruit loops to the correct colors.

Gratitude turkey from Little Family Fun.  I would really like to write down what my daughter is thankful for and put it together like this.  She could help with some of the letters and color the turkey body.

What crafts do you do with your kids this time of year?

Thanks for visiting!

This is a great collection--pinning this now! I think my favorites were the thumb print turkey and the gratitude turkey. This will be a great way to help my kids learn what thanksgiving is all about! I'm visiting from Work It Wednesday (my linkups were #17 and 20)

I love the footprint turkeys! I have been looking for crafts to keep my (almost) 3 yr old son busy while I decorate and prepare for the holidays! These are great ideas to teach him about Thanksgiving!
