Thanksgiving Crafts

I've been searching for the best Thanksgiving Crafts to keep us busy indoors when the weather is icky. These crafts may also come in handy when you're trying to keep little bodies out of the kitchen on Thanksgiving day. Set up a craft table, and let them work while you cook. Here are two simple and fun ideas to keep those little fingers busy. And what craft time would be complete without a snack? So I'm including one of those, too.

Turkey Hat
We just watched a Curious George episode where George makes a hat. So Hudson is all about making hats lately. And this is another way you can re-purpose your brown paper shopping bags.

Thankful Tree
This little number can serve as entertainment, and decor for your Thanksgiving Table. If you don't love the tree idea, then make the leaves and string them up as a banner. A great way to get you in the thankful spirit of the season.

Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats
Here's a tasty little treat to make when craft time is over.

Happy Crafting!

We just made that same turkey hat at our house yesterday. It was a big success!
