Thanksgiving Crafts and Games

While compiling this collection of Thanksgiving crafts for
families to do together, I concentrated (mostly) on the ones that focused on harvest,
tradition and thankfulness.

From The Holiday Zone (this
site has lots more Thanksgiving ideas)

Thanksgiving Collage Collect old magazines, catalogs,
and sales papers with plenty of pictures. Cut out pictures of the items you are
most thankful for. Neatly mount pictures on colored paper. Beneath each
picture, write the name of each item. Arrange pictures on poster, bulletin
board, wall, or door.

Chain of Gratitude Cut colored paper into one-inch
strips. On each strip, write something you are thankful for. Tape or staple
strips into rings and intertwine to form a “chain of gratitude.”

Thanksgiving Certificates List three or more people for
whom you are thankful. Beside each person’s name, write the things about that
person for which you are thankful for. Now, create a “certificate of
appreciation” to tell each person how much you appreciate him or her
