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. Some are repeats from previous years, some are new.
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.
