Thanksgiving Holiday Leaf Crafts for Kids

kids' crafts

It’s fall. And those leaves are coming off the trees in piles. Instead of raking them all away, use some of your autumn leaves for a few cute kids’ Thanksgiving crafts. Take a look at the ways in which your child can transform plain fall leaves into adorable art with a Thanksgiving theme.

Leaf Turkeys

Grab a large leaf and glue it onto a piece of card stock paper or cardboard. The pointy parts at the top double as the turkey’s feathers. Have your child draw on a face and paint the ‘feathers’ or body with temperas. Instead of paint, your child can also use markers or oil pastel crayons.

Leaf Wreath

Greet your Thanksgiving Day guests with a pretty leaf wreath on the door. Your child can paint fall leaves, and then glue them (after they’ve dried) onto an “O” shaped piece of cut cardboard.

Pretty Placemats

Have your child collage fall leaves onto a piece of card stock paper. Press the leaves down firmly. Cover the collage with a tight layer of plastic wrap before setting the holiday table.

Perfect Place Cards

Cut 8×10-inch pieces of card stock paper in half. Fold each piece in half to make a place card tent shape. Write one family member or guest’s name on each card. Now your kiddo can decorate around the name by gluing fall leaves onto the card. You can also ask your child to paint bold colors or pretty patterns onto the leaves first.
