Other than turkey legs and parades, getting into the Thanksgiving spirit is the best part about this time of year. We have already talked about ways to give back, now we’re talking about how to get the family involved and in the holiday spirit with themed arts and crafts!

Old toilet paper rolls are free and easy to come by; they also make a great Thanksgiving day craft. There are many things that you can make out of an old roll of toilet paper. For starters, there’s the turkey. The only materials you would need for this are the old toilet paper roll, colored construction paper, scissors, googly eyes, glue, and a black marker.
Some people take their turkey to a whole different level by adding actual feathers that can easily be bought at your local arts and crafts store. You can also make a really cool top hat (like what Abe Lincoln used to wear) or even a little Pilgrim family. Check out this post on Pinterest that shows different ideas and ways to create your turkey.
We love Pumpkins here at Talktainmentradio.com so it is only right that we have at least one pumpkin thanksgiving craft. This Pumpkin is called “The Thankful Pumpkin”. The materials needed for a craft like this one are colored construction paper, scissors, markers, and a stapler or tape.
Cut the construction paper into strips and have everyone in your family write down something they are thankful for. After all of the strips are marked with gratitude, piece them together and form a pumpkin. Here is a photo of the idea from Pinterest:
These are just a couple of the ideas I came across on Pinterest. Search “Thanksgiving Crafts“ and get your craft on! There are tons of easy and cute ideas.
