Kids like making things. This next craft will keep them busy. Simply place each of the supplies in separate bowls so they can grab what they need and make this adorable walnut turkey! Piece of advice…get a plastic tablecloth to cover whatever table they will be crafting at. Kids like to use a lot of glue!

I love this next DIY Thanksgiving craft! Who doesn’t love making something with Mason jars?!? This Mason jar turkey craft is not only cute, but it is super easy to make. Knowing the ages of kids at our thanksgiving, I would maybe prep the jars ahead of time with the spray glue and glitter. Then have the kids go to town designing their turkey!

This next craft is for the kids. You can either have them put the craft all together themselves, or you can make these table favors ahead and have them waiting at the kids place at the table. The nice thing about this craft…it uses up all that leftover Halloween candy you want to get rid of! You’re welcome!
