Hello everyone! It’s me, Heather from The Caterpillar Years, and I’m back this month to share a VERY fun Thanksgiving activity kit!!

Thanksgiving is such a fun, relaxing day of football, food and family, but my little ones don’t seem to get quite as excited as I do, watching the bird browning in the oven.

This year, I’m prepared with five Thanksgiving themed activities, for kids ages 2-12, to help make the wait for dinner a little more exciting for everyone.

Free Printable Thanksgiving Activities for Kids

Most of the materials required for these activities are already in your home! The rest are easily sourced from your local craft store.

I included a convenient supply list to print out and take with you to the store, so you’ll have everything on-hand and ready for the big day.

The activities in this packet include:

Thanksgiving Marshmallow Launcher Thanksgiving Activities for Kids - Paper Bag Dress Ups Thanksgiving Newspaper Pilgrim Hats Thanksgiving Craft Toilet Paper Tube Turkey

I’ve also included links to five of my favorite Thanksgiving themed coloring pages!

      Hi Janet! Those marshmallow launchers are fun for ALL ages! My husband and I ran around for an entire afternoon chasing the kids (and each other) with those launchers—VERY FUN! Thanks for pinning!
