We love the month of November as it’s my daughters birthday! She’s super excited and has been counting down the days for a while. Her birthday falls on the same day that Thanksgiving is celebrated so I thought it would be fun to pull together a round up on Thanksgiving Turkey crafts for kids. Since 1939 Thanksgiving has been celebrated as a federal holiday, celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.
We’ve already shared a few fun Thanksgiving crafts, including our Rolo Turkey Pretzels treats and our Pilgrim Hat cookies. These make great treats if you are having guests over to celebrate. Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away so you have plenty of time to gather supplies and get crafting with the kids.
