Thanksgiving Ideas For Kids
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to teach kids about the value of gratitude. But it can be tough to keep little ones entertained during all the cooking and preparation.
That’s why we’ve put together a list of fun, hands-on crafts, activities, books, and more for kids to do to celebrate Thanksgiving.
These activities will not only keep them busy, but they’ll also get them thinking about all the things they’re thankful for!
Kids’ Books About Thanksgiving
There are so many reasons why reading to your child is good for them. It helps to develop their vocabulary and understanding of grammar, encourages them to use their imagination, and it fosters a love of learning.
Reading also helps children to make connections between the world around them and the stories they hear. As they listen to you read, they begin to see how the characters in the book are feeling and how they might react in similar situations.
Start off the celebrations with some fun Thanksgiving books:
Below are some of the top Thanksgiving books for kids!

Thanksgiving Crafts For Kids
Crafts are a great way for children to express their creativity and explore their imaginations. But crafts can also be beneficial for children’s cognitive and physical development.
For example, gluing paper together can help children develop fine motor skills, and painting can help them improve their hand-eye coordination.
In addition, crafts can help children develop problem-solving skills as they figure out how to create the objects they have in mind. And as they work on projects, children learn to follow instructions and to pay attention to detail.
So in addition to being fun, crafts can also be an important part of children’s development! Why not add in even more crafts with these ideas:
