Terrific Hands-On Activities for Thanksgiving Fun for Kids

Be ready for a fun holiday celebration with your kids. Prepare a collection of simple Thanksgiving activities that your kids can enjoy.

With an arsenal of Thanksgiving fun resources, your kids will get excited about the holiday and you’ll get time to do what you need to (or have a bit of time to relax!).

As a mom to five boys, I’ve learned that spending some time putting together simple activity packs for the holidays can make the whole experience much more enjoyable and fun for all.

Energy and excitement levels amp up when a holiday rolls around. It’s a special time to look forward to and celebrate.

Channel all that enthusiasm into positive activities. Invite your kids to help with holiday preparations. Ask for their suggestions on side dishes or seating arrangements.

This Thanksgiving Fun Bundle is a fantastic way to easily enjoy holiday fun with your kids. It has so many ways to have a blast with print-and-go activities, games, and more.

And when you need time to work on more complicated tasks (or just a chance to breathe), pull out some fun Thanksgiving activities for your kids to complete.

These free Thanksgiving Playdough Mats are excellent ways to give your kids hands-on fun. These mats can be used again and again (see my tips below). Add these printables to our other Thanksgiving Fun resources and you’ll be ready for an amazing holiday with your kids 🙂

Cool Ways to Boost the Learning Fun with these Thanksgiving Playdough Mats

Playdough mats are fantastic ways to give your kids focused activities with special themes.

Here are a few tips to help you extend the learning fun with these Thanksgiving playdough mats:

  • Print this set on white cardstock. You can use regular printer paper but cardstock makes them more durable.
  • Laminate your playdough mats. OR use clear dry erase pocket sleeves as we do!
  • Make your own playdough or buy a set. Try to include holiday-themed colors, if possible.
  • Print out extra copies of these playdough mats for use as Thanksgiving coloring pages.
  • Encourage your kids to think outside the box. Sure, they can use traditional Thanksgiving colors (like brown, orange, yellow, and green). But, what would a pink turkey look like? Or a polka dot feathers?
  • Add fun extras, like buttons, building blocks, sequins, and feathers.
