Thanksgiving Crafts and Children’s Activities
Entertain Thanksgiving with your favorite activities!
Thanksgiving Festivities are right around the corner. Several enjoy an intimate dinner with close friends and family, while others enjoy a calm moment at home or kick back like any other day. Regardless, our children remind us that they are out of school or bored and it’s their Thanksgiving break, so what does that mean? Entertainment for them, but showtime for you, so get ready and pull out the mom bag of tricks.
Millennial Mom Magazine discovered a few of your childhood favorites to save you time and energy. These three quality time activities will bring up some old memories for you, and fun for your family to enjoy. Exposing your children to what may be a new and creative activity for them, sparks curiosity. When the questions begin, take the time to reminisce about your wonder years; laugh and compare stories. Kids believe that you have always been a mom; back-in-the-day conversation will expose your children to the human being you are. Believe it or not, while having this discussion, you are developing an even more significant, respectable connection.
What happened to paper bag puppets? We assume that our childhood activities would be too boring for our children, but don’t assume without introducing and presenting the opportunity to experience. The Paper Bag Turkey Puppet activity will entertain adults and kids. Writing down what you and yours are grateful for will add to the conversation. Who would have thought that a fun and easy art project could be so engaging and intimate?
If you don’t know, now you know; the all-time favorite, the paper fortune teller. Why was the fortune teller so cool? It placed magic in your hands, creating wishes labeled with colors and numbers was exciting. Remember that excitement that occurred when the inside of eight flaps opened with a concealing message? With this activity, you are teaching a valuable lesson. Practicing appreciation by showing gratitude or giving thanks is vital for building a child’s character. Celebrating thankfulness and appreciating the elements in our life is what Thanksgiving is all about.
Paint-by-Number, Mad Libs, Word Search and Find, these engaging activity pages never go out if style. We all loved coloring, solving and puzzles. You can grab your crayons too!
