Okay, I’ll confess. The banner for sponsorship on this site is very annoying, but the content is great enough that I think you can overlook it. Here you can learn a little bit about the history behind Thanksgiving for both the U.S. and Canada, where it is celebrated in October.
You will find awesome crafts and activities for children in preschool or Kindergarten and even elementary school ages. The crafts look like anyone can use them, but some of the activities are only available to site members. I think they still serve as great ideas to help you generate your own projects though!
The site is broken down into sections: Crafts, Activities and Worksheets. My absolute favorite thing on this site is the Hand and Foot Turkey! It is so awesome! The idea is that you trace around your foot and your hands on construction paper and then put them together to make the turkey. Your hands are the feathers and your feet form the body. It’s really cool!
I think it’s an awesome project for kids to give their parents on Thanksgiving, because then the parents can look back and remember how small their child’s’ feet and hands were and see how much they’ve grown!
In the Worksheet area, you’ll find fun things to do, like matching words to pictures, quizzes, word scrambles and much more. The Activities section has some great ideas too, like making an apple book, a vacation memory book and more.
Whether you want to let your kids help decorate with some of these fun crafts or are looking for activities and worksheets you can implement in the classroom, this site has a lot to offer. Check it out and have fun on Thanksgiving!
