Every year I have high hopes of making some amazing crafts with my kids leading up to Thanksgiving and every year, I fail. I am seriously not the crafty mom. I despise chaos. I loathe glitter. And yet, I have two very crafty daughters. So this year, I promised them I would try harder. That we would find some kid-friendly crafts to do for the holidays.

Thanksgiving is a great time to break out the craft supplies and create! Whether you want to make decorations for your family gathering or want to occupy the kids after dinner, these kid-friendly Thanksgiving crafts are sure to be a hit! #Thanksgiving #crafts #Thanksgivingcrafts #DIY

I will be honest, I am a little afraid of what my house will look like after we work on them, but I cannot wait to see their eyes light up with pride when they finish them! If you’re looking for some adorable crafts to help you decorate this year or make after Thanksgiving dinner while others are watching football (or napping), check these out!
