If you are having people over for Thanksgiving and there are kids involved, it’s always good to have a little something on hand for the kids to do. But nobody wants a huge mess and you may not have time (or want) to run to the store and get a bunch of supplies. I’ve got you covered with these ideas! Here are 5 easy Thanksgiving construction paper crafts that only need paper, markers, scissors, glue, and maybe one or two other things you probably already have on hand.

5 Easy Thanksgiving Construction Paper Crafts

3D Construction Paper Turkey | Twitchetts

These 3D turkeys would be so fun to make to decorate the table, or just for kids to play with after the meal is over. I love the giant googly eyes!


Hand and Footprint Turkey | That’s What Che Said

Kids can trace their footprint and handprint and use various colors to make these cute turkeys. If you have a wide range of ages, older kids can help the younger ones while the adults enjoy food (or clean up!).

Paper Plate Turkey Hats | Honey and Lime

In addition to construction paper, you’ll also need a paper plate to make one of these fun turkey hats.

Coffee Filter Turkey | Buggy and Buddy

Kids can use their creative juices to color the turkey’s feathers however they want to. I also love the little accordion turkey legs!

Thankful Turkey | Busy Toddler

The original idea of this is as a countdown to Thanksgiving. But you can still do this all in one day or a few to let everyone share what they’re thankful for. Just have a pile of feathers where people can write what they’re thankful for.
