Need November crafts for kids?! These Thanksgiving crafts are perfect for preschoolers, toddlers, and big kids. Check out these 6 easy Thanksgiving Crafts for kids this November.
November Craft – corn cob process art
Materials: corn cob, thick paper, paint
Directions: tape down the paper, roll corn cob in a tray, and then roll along the paper to create the prints
Why: process art emphasizes the process rather than the end result. Creating this art encourages self expression, healthy coping skills, as well as exploration of color, texture, and print making!
November Craft – broccoli stamped trees
Materials: broccoli, thick paper or canvas, paint
Directions: tape down the paper, dip broccoli in tray of paint, and stamp to create fall leaves.
Why: This activity is a great compliment to books about changing fall colors and the changing seasons. Also, much like corn cob prints, this art encourages self expression, healthy coping skills, as well as exploration of color, texture, and print making!
November Crafts – pumpkin pie counting craft
Materials: thick brown and orange paper, black marker, white pompoms or cotton balls
Directions: trace a pie plate on your paper – cut paper to make 6 pie slices and label 1-6. Explore matching the correct number of cotton balls or pompoms to the number on the slice.
Why: This activity is excellent for exploring number recognition and 1:1 correspondence (counting 1 number at a time as we point to each object). My kiddos also enjoyed making the pie slice and gluing pompoms onto the slices when we were done!
November Craft – bubble wrap prints
Materials: bubble wrap, thick paper or canvas, paint
Directions: tape down the bubble wrap, paint image onto the bubble wrap, and lay the paper on the bubble wrap (rub hands around to press paper firmly all over) and create your print!
Why: Much like the other process art activities shared here, this art encourages self expression, healthy coping skills, as well as exploration of color, texture, and print making!
November Crafts for Kids – feed the turkey fine motor activity
Materials: coffee creamer bottle, pop bottle, dressing bottle, or another bottle with a small opening at the top, thick paper, googly eyes, pompoms. (kids’ tweezers optional!)
Directions: wash and dry your bottle, glue on feathers, eyes, and beak, and then invite your child to drop pompoms in the bottle to feed the turkey.
Why: Excellent fine motor activity! Picking up the pompoms will get your kiddos using their pincer grasp. Building fine motor strength will help kids build a foundation for later skills like writing, cutting with scissor, fastening buttons and so much more!
