Fun Thanksgiving Decorations to do with your Kids

Dariela_Thanksgiving_center_piece

Thanksgiving decorations for kids are everywhere, kids can help with anything involving a decoration, they just love to be part of it!

One of the main decorations I change at home every season is the centerpiece of the dining table. It’s been a while since I don’t use candles to decorate but during this season all we want to experience at home is a warm and cozy feeling, so scented candles help a lot with that.

This is a super easy Thanksgiving craft that can be put together in minutes. The kids were excited to help me in arranging the flowers and just setting up all the elements we got at Family Dollar on the table.

For our Thanksgiving crafts decorations we usually do a lot of them involving giving thanks. Even though the kids are not so old to understand everything, since they were babies we’ve been doing it and it’s now part of a tradition at home. The craft usually involves leaves as well.

Instructions:

-Take out the photo that comes inside the frame, place it on top of a construction paper and trace around it with a pencil on the construction paper.

-Have the kids paint each leaf with a different color, let them dry and then add glue to the bottom of each leaf, randomly glue them on the construction paper.

-Place several books on top of the finished art so the leaves glue well for at least 3 hours or overnight.

-Let the kids and the whole family write with a marker on each leaf what they are thankful for (if they are too young, let them draw it!), and make it one or 2 words.

-Cut the finished artwork and place it inside the frame. Hang it in your favorite corner of the house!
