Thanksgiving Turkey Crafts

The interest in craft ideas for kids usually increases around the Thanksgiving holiday.

Thanksgiving is an important traditional holiday in America celebrating the first Thanksgiving Dinner in 1621. This historical event marked the success of the first harvest on American shores by the founding settlers from Europe, the Pilgrims, who arrived and settled at Plymouth Rock. Having sufficient food set aside for the long cold winter ahead ensured the survival of their settlement, and was reason enough for them to celebrate.

Thanksgiving is celebrated in the Fall, a time of harvest and a special time of year as leaves turn to rich autumnal colors and there are plentiful supplies of seeds, cones and other natural items that lend themselves to arts and crafts activities for kids. Fall crafts are closely associated with kids activities at Thanksgiving time, and offer a way to teach children about the history and meaning of Thanksgiving while engaged in craft projects to make homemade Thanksgiving decorations.
