70+ Thanksgiving Activities for Toddlers and Preschool


Hope you had an amazing and wonderful October full of laughter, family and friends! 


Now, let’s bring on November! 


I’ve dug far and through and compiled a list of over 70 of the very best Thanksgiving activities and crafts by some fantastic bloggers! 


These are simple to put together and fun for littles! I’ve also categorized them in 5 different categories: 


  • Thanksgiving Arts and Crafts for Kids

  • Thanksgiving Activities for Toddlers

  • Thanksgiving Activities for Preschoolers

  • Thanksgiving Sensory Activities

  • Easy Thanksgiving Activities at Home


I hope this is so very helpful to you and that you dive right in to what you are looking for with ease!



Going Down Memory Lane as a kid on Thanksgiving..

Thanksgiving was so much fun as a kid. After all, October had just passed and December was coming! 


So many fun activities and crafts were going on and it was truly a time to be treasured!


As mentioned in our 70+ Halloween Activities post, I remember a lot of glue, construction paper and markers laid out on the table for creative decorations and inspiring poetry. 


I really enjoy reliving it through the eyes of my daughters by presenting them with fun and simple Thanksgiving activities and crafts by way of our own creativeness as well as the creativeness of a few of my favorite bloggers! 


Some of these activities will provide an educational, sensorial, and diy approach – Thanksgiving/Turkey themed of course! 🙂


Hope you enjoy!
