The other day we took out our craft supplies and had fun, I previously mentioned I am about a toddler level in crafting so today I am sharing some thankful crafts best suited for toddlers or preschool level, although you could adjust them to be for older children as well. Have fun making these with your children.
Do your best to draw a tree on brown construction paper, then cut out pieces of green tree leaves or what not using green construction paper …
Use glue or tape to add the green leaves to the tree once children have written whatever they may be thankful for on the leaves. You could take the time to discuss why they should be or can be thankful for the most simple of things; such as food on the table, roof over their heads, keep it toddler simple though! You can then glue the Thankful Tree to a white sheet of paper so that it is more sturdy and more appealing to the eyes!
Next up is one of my old school favorites, have the kids trace their hands on their color choice of construction paper, then help with cutting out of the hand tracing of course. When doing a thankful turkey, I usually have my thumb pushed out like shown in image above so it looks more like a turkey head.
As you can see in the above image, I simply cut it out, added a gobbler and some color then wrote things I am thankful for on my fingers; these are examples for children to use for thankful turkey!
If you make this craft and are not supervising the children, I am in no way at fault for any harm done, this craft is meant to be a supervised craft when the child is clearly not old enough to make this snowman on their own. Please use common sense when crafting up any craft ideas I share. I am not to blame for any malfunctions or injuries that occur when making my craft project ideas.
What type of simple thankful crafts do you do with your kids?
