Thanksgiving Activties for Young Children

by Jill & Cathy on November 6, 2012

Thanksgiving memories made for their families by young children can be something parents treasure for a long time.  Because of this, we have created an assortment of activities that you can use with your younger children.  Many of them include a spot for a photo and have a place where the child can write (or you can write for them if they are too young.)

Little Turkey  Print in color and add a photo of a child’s face to the center.  These little turkeys will make a cute classroom decoration before you send them home.

Thankful for You  As the teacher, you spend a great deal of time with the children.  Parents love to hear why you appreciate their child.  On this colorful paper, fill in what you love about their child.  Add a picture and send home.  Parents then record what they are thankful for about their child.  These can become a wonderful keepsake!

A Thankful Turkey  Send home our turkey feather outline.  Parents decorate to show why they love their child.  Cut out a brown turkey shape from construction paper and add the feathers as parents return them to school.  This makes a great display for families to see as they enter the building.

My Family  Children draw a picture of their family and then give a reason they have to be thankful.  Again, you may need to write for younger children.
