Make Your Event Extra Special with Holiday-Themed Activities!
When a holiday (like Thanksgiving) is approaching, you can just feel the excitement in the air.
Kids of all ages are often bouncing off the walls in anticipation of the big day. At least that’s what it’s like with my 5 boys!
So, how do you contain or focus all of that holiday energy, especially when you’re busy cleaning, prepping, and cooking?
With simple (and free!) printable activities!
Sure, hands-on activities and games that get the kids up and moving are excellent ways to burn up some of that holiday energy.
But, you don’t always have the time organize and direct those types of activities. Like when you’re making pie crust or mashing potatoes 😉
Over the years, I’ve discovered a special holiday sanity saver: having a collection of printable activities ready to go.
Why are these types of printables so helpful? Well, these printable activities are:
- Able to be prepared ahead of time
- Calming (quiet activities that involve coloring, writing, drawing)
- Can be done independently or in small groups
- Encourage creativity
- Great for boredom busters
- Fantastic for screen-free activities
What’s Inside This Free Thanksgiving Printables Pack?
You’ll find 10 different Thanksgiving-themed printable activities in this pack, including:
- Gratitude ABCs
- Thanksgiving Compound Words Match (*the one image shows a soccer ball but corresponds with “football” – what most countries around the world call soccer – you can use it as an opportunity to talk about this amazing sport!)
- I’m So Grateful Writing and Drawing Prompts
- Thanksgiving Patterns (includes cut-and-paste activity)
- Thanksgiving Vocabulary (has dotted lines underneath pictures for kids to write down the Thanksgiving-themed word)
