Thanksgiving Craft: Thankful Pumpkin
These easy Thanksgiving craft projects for kids will let children unleash their inner artists — and free you to prep Thanksgiving dinner.
This easy craft from The Moffatt Girls does double duty as a gratitude exercise, too -- perfect for Thanksgiving. Cut orange paper into strips (or have older kids help with this step), and then encourage your little ones to think of some favorite things to list on each strip (Mom and Dad, a stuffed animal, Legos, and pizza all count!). Layer the strips and staple at the top with a paper leaf listing the child's name and year to create a paper pumpkin memento you can bring out every November.
