Thankful for Thanksgiving Kids’ Craft

kids-art

What is your family thankful for? Celebrate Thanksgiving with a thankful tree craft. Your creative kiddos can get artsy, while learning about gratitude. After the crafting is complete, use the tree as a centerpiece for your holiday meal table or as home decor!

Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Card stock paper in fall colors- orange, red, light brown and yellow
  • Scissors
  • Yarn in fall colors
  • A hole bunch
  • Markers
  • Twigs- search for fallen twigs in your yard
  • A large clean mason jar
  • Ribbon in a fall color
  • Tissue paper in fall colors

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Cut the card stock paper into leaf shapes. Your child can either draw leaves onto the paper freehand or use a stencil to trace the shapes. If you don’t have a stencil, you can make one with a piece of cardboard.
  2. Punch one hole at the edge of each paper leaf.
  3. Thread a piece of yarn through the hole and tie it at the end with a knot.
  4. Ask your child to tell you what they’re thankful for. Their answers can include anything from a family member (such as a parent, sibling or grandparent) or pet to an activity (such as dance class) or your home. Write what your child is thankful for on each leaf. If your child can’t write the letters themselves, lightly write the words with a pencil and ask your child to trace over them with a marker.
  5. Cut or tear the tissue paper into hand-sized pieces. Crumble the tissue and fill the mason jar tightly.
  6. Tie the ribbon around the top edge (the mouth) of the mason jar.
  7. Place the twigs into the tissue.
  8. Hang or tie the thankful leaves onto the twigs.
