					Arts and crafts for kindergarten Thanksgiving

It is never too early to start children with fun art projects, which is
why you need to get some ideas for arts and crafts for kindergarten
Thanksgiving. Even these little guys can create fun arts and crafts for
the Thanksgiving holiday that can decorate both the classroom as well as
your own home. Arts and crafts for kindergarten Thanksgiving projects
are not as difficult as you might think because most children in
kindergarten can use scissors, glue, and color. Here are a few we are
fans of:

A great project for arts and crafts for kindergarten Thanksgiving is to
make a Thanksgiving card for them to take home. All you need is a piece
of construction paper and fold it in half. Have the child trace his or
her hand on the front of the card. Let them color the thumb brown which
is the turkey’s head. This is a side view, by the way. The fingers are
the turkey feathers and they should be multi-colored. Have them draw on
an eye and a red wattle. On the inside of the card, have this poem pre-
printed and let them paste it in:

This isn't just a Turkey
As anyone can see,
I made it with my hand
Which is part of me.
It comes with lots of love
Especially to say,
I hope that you have a very
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!!

Here is a great arts and crafts for kindergarten Thanksgiving project
that will take a little time to prepare but will be awfully special for
the big day. Go outside and find a small twig with a few branches still
on it. In an empty, clean soup can, pour in plaster of Paris and stick
the twig into the center. Let dry. Have several leaves available that
are cut out of construction paper. Every morning, have the child write
something they are thankful for and then hang from the tree. If you
start this out at the beginning of November, by Thanksgiving Day, you’ll
have a great table center piece!

Get together a lot of ideas for arts and crafts for kindergarten
Thanksgiving. If you are a teacher, try a few different ones each year.
If you are a parent, you have new ideas from year to year. Either way,
you will have some great crafts you can count on as your child grows
because even though they are arts and crafts for kindergarten
Thanksgiving, your child can still make them at any age, they just look
better and better as time moves on!
