Thanksgiving Meal Activities for Preschoolers

holiday-meal

Even though your preschooler can’t cook the turkey, they can help with the Thanksgiving meal. If you’re looking for a way to let your littles pitch in, check out these easy family-friendly options!

Make a Menu

Your young artist can get creative and draw their own artsy menu. Talk to your child about traditional Thanksgiving meal ideas—such as the turkey, cranberry sauce and sweet potatoes or yams. Show your child the items or (if you haven’t started cooking) pictures of the foods. Your child can draw each item onto a piece of paper to make their own holiday menu. Repeat the drawing steps to make one menu for each family member or guest.

Mix and Measure

While cooking with heat is reserved for teens and adults, younger children can still get in on the meal-making process. Turn the kitchen into a science lab and ask your preschooler to help measure and mix ingredients such as flour, water, milk and other similar items.

Decorate Treats

Combine crafting and cooking into one fun kids’ activity. Your preschooler can use frosting, sprinkles and colorful crystal sugar as art materials to decorate cupcakes, cakes or cookies you’ve already baked for the holiday meal.
