Painted Turke Thanksgiving Craft

Painted Turkey Thanksgiving Craft is a really fun and easy craft for children of any age. I love creating Thanksgiving Traditions – they are very important to me. Yesterday I posted a super easy Coffee Filter Craft Project too that you might enjoy.  Be sure to use this Turkey Timeline to help you stay organized for Thanksgiving.

Perfect for when you are COOKING the Thanksgiving Feast and need something for the kids to do to keep them busy and out of harms way.  Not only that but you will be fostering learning at the same time.  One idea is to set up a craft and learning station in your garage or basement so the kids can stay entertained and out of the way while you are busy cooking. Don’t have a garage or basement, no worries, find any free space or tuck them into the corner of the kitchen if necessary.  Put tons of supplies out on a table and be sure to cover the table with newspaper or a plastic table cloth.  You may need to cover the floor too.  Pick up plastic tablecloths at the dollar store and then let them express themselves. Let the kids create some amazing Thanksgiving themed crafts and work on these worksheets and coloring pages while you are working on the meal.

Here are some Thanksgiving Craft Ideas to keep the kids busy crafting while you are cooking.  I would suggest assigning some older teens to watch over and assist the kids if possible.

Painted Turkey Thanksgiving Craft:


  • Brown Construction Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tempra Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Cups of Water

To Make:

Cut out a turkey shape and then provide paint for the children!

Leave their imagination to create the perfect turkey.

These could be turned into place mats by covering with contact paper!

Add names and they are also place cards.

We hope your kids enjoy making these festive Painted Turkey Thanksgiving Craft.  The sky is the limit on their creativity with this one!
