Family Matters: Crafts for Thanksgiving

Saturday, November 17, 2012

 

Thanksgiving is coming up quicker than ever this year, but there's still time this weekend and next week to do some fun, seasonal crafts with the kidos. Here are some of my favorites, created by some fantastic bloggers.

Pine Cone Turkey

These hilarious little things are fun, easy, and a delight to make. Park them in windowsills, on mantels, and at the kids' table on Thanksgiving.

How to: Get directions from Such Things, here.

Leaf Garland

This one is my favorite. Have everyone write something they are thankful for on a leaf. Hang in a doorway, window or from a chandelier.

How to: Get directions from Full Circle, here.

Family Banner

Make your Thanksgiving statement a truly individual one, letter by letter.

How to: Get inspiration from Cakies, here.

Place Cards

Letter-shaped noodles make great placecard materials, and Eden Organic Vegetable Alphabets noodles come in perfectly autumnal colors.

Nature Sculptures

With the magic of Sculpey, this is a super-easy natural craft for pretty much every age. Perfect for a post-Thanksgiving meal stroll in the woods.

Acorn Wreath

Another great post-outdoor expedition project. Get them harvesting acorns from the ground and prepare this lovely wreath.

Not exactly a craft, or rather an edible one! What kid can resist this kind of seasonal breakfast art?

These are so easy to make and so lovely everywhere in the house, on Thanksgiving and every evening.

Felt Napkin Rings

This could be an annual project, adding new colors and variations each year. By the time the kidos are grown, there's a banquet's worth!

Paper Turkey

Remember the tissue-paper-accordion turkeys from our childhood? Update that paper turkey with this fun paper project.
