Fun and Easy Thanksgiving Craft Ideas for Kids
Ah, the magic of Thanksgiving! It is truly a wonderful day, a time to look back and reflect on all that we have to be grateful for. We at Kinderkind, a children clothing online store, are particularly thankful for all the love and support we receive from each one of you, every single day.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to talk to your kids about family values and tradition. Kids love to participate in Thanksgiving celebrations, from decorating, to helping mash the potatoes, to making cards and sitting down to feast with the family, dressed in their favorite bomber jacket or chambray skirt.
Due to the pandemic, however, it may be difficult to have big gatherings and get the whole clan together. Understandably, it’s upsetting. To cheer up your child, we have for you some fun and easy thanksgiving craft ideas that they will absolutely love! Whether it’s for a cozy corner of the house, for the dinner table, or something that will be gifted to a lucky family favorite, these are all innovative ways for your little genius to get creative, and pay homage to the holiday.
AUTUMN LEAF WINDOW CLINGS
This is the perfect time of the year to dress your kiddo in their warmest denim jacket or zip-up hoodie and set off on long, rambling walks, collecting those gorgeous autumn-tinted leaves strewn all around, like nature’s very own décor. And we have the perfect craft activity for your little one to put these leaves to use, with these delightful window clings or sun catchers. With the light streaming through them, they create enchanting silhouettes of the leaf shapes in your home – what could be more festive?

Your very own Thanksgiving-themed table ornament, which we guarantee will bring huge smiles to the faces of your guests. You can even add glitter for a bit of pizzazz!
