5 Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

Since we started our Sunday Afternoon Craft Times this fall, I’m always searching Pinterest for easy craft ideas for kids ages 5 to 10. These 5 Thanksgiving craft ideas, including one I did a few years ago, with my kids are easy for you to set up and require items you may have around the house or in your craft stash. You’ll find more craft ideas on my Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids Pinterest Board.

I love this roundup. These crafts are cute and also look easy enough for craft-allergic people like me! HA!
