Easy Thanksgiving Placemat Crafts for Kids

kids' crafts

You’re dressing up the Thanksgiving table. But that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank on pricey decorations. Instead, get your child to help out and craft up a few cute placemats for your family to use. If you’re looking for a holiday art activity, check out these kids’ Thanksgiving placemat projects.

Felt Turkeys

Start this placemat with an 8×10-inch piece of craft felt in a fall color, such as red, orange or yellow. Cut out brown craft felt circles, making one bigger (for the turkey’s body) and one smaller (for its head). Your child can press the turkey into the larger craft felt sheet, and then add felt ovals as feathers. Draw a face on with a fabric marker or use googley eyes to complete the craft.

Laminated Thanks Mat

Create your own “I give thanks for…” palmate deign in a word processing program. Make sure to use a horizontal or landscape setting. Laminate the pages and hand out dry erase markers for the guests to use before they eat. You can wipe the mats clean before the plates go onto the table to avoid a marker mess.

Cute Collage

Page through child-friendly magazines to find Thanksgiving pictures. Cut the pictures out and have your child collage them onto 8×10-inch card stock paper.
