kids' crafts

Gather around the holiday dinner table and telling everyone what or who you are thankful for is a Thanksgiving tradition in many families. Take this year’s thankful talk up a notch with a fun-filled kids’ craft. Start by gathering colorful fall leaves. With a few simple prep steps your kiddo can help the whole family to start a brand-new tradition that you can add to each year!

Materials You’ll Need

  • Fall leaves
  • Tempera paint
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Paintbrushes
  • Card stock paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Double-sided tape

How-To Steps

  1. Paint the leaves. Your child can add to the already colorful leaves by matching them to a brighter hue. Let the leaves dry completely.
  2. Cut square or rectangles from the card stock paper. Size these so that they are small enough to fit on a leaf but large enough to write on.
  3. Hand each of your family members or guests a paper square or rectangle, a painted leaf and a marker. Each person can write what they’re thankful for on the paper.
  4. Tape the paper shapes onto the leaves.
  5. Share the leaves with the rest of the Thanksgiving dinner guests.
  6. Create a wreath or poster-sized collage with the leaves, adding to it each year on Thanksgiving.
