Get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving with some fun Thanksgiving activities for preschoolers!
These Thanksgiving activities put gratitude and memories into any holiday celebration.
For preschoolers, the activities are a great chance to introduce them to what Thanksgiving means and why we celebrate it.
Preschool Thanksgiving Activities
Like most of the crafts that we feature, these Thanksgiving activities and crafts don’t use a lot of complicated materials.
They focus more on the fun and the fine motor skills that your preschooler will build than the expensive and fancy supplies. In fact, we’re pretty much opposed to extravagant supplies because crafts should be fun – not stressful or pricey!
So, what should you expect from these Thanksgiving activities?
Expect that there will be some cutting, some gluing, some paint (if you opt for those crafts), and a whole lot of talking about what Thanksgiving is and why we celebrate it on the fourth Thursday of every November.
What You’ll Need for These Thanksgiving Activities
As we said, there are no fancy supplies needed for these crafts and activities. For the most part, depending on which ones you select, these are the basic supplies that the majority of the following crafts require:
- kid-friendly scissors
- glue sticks
- construction paper
- tissue paper
- cardboard tubes
- markers or crayons
There are other things like feathers, paint, etc. that some of the crafts do require so be sure to read the complete supply list before tackling any of the crafts.
There’s nothing worse than being halfway into a craft only to discover you don’t have something that you need to finish it!

Making Thanksgiving Memories
Part of what makes the holidays so special is that they help us create memories with those we love. Use this time of year to make some crafts and do some holiday-themed activities to build those memories with your little ones.
Time goes by very quickly and before you know it, your preschoolers will be heading off to college.
Taking the time now to do some simple crafts that you can hang onto over the years will make the transition to growing up a little bit easier for all of you.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
