Thanksgiving Crafts for the Kids Table

by Lynn Lilly, Nov 08 2022

The kids table is the fun table! The kids table can also be the creative table that keeps the kiddos busy while you are prepping for Thanksgiving or keeps them entertained so you can have a relaxing dinner.  On this week's Crayola Facebook live broadcast I am sharing 3 crafts for the kids table at Thanksgiving! 

All the Crayola products used in today's broadcast can be found

Crayola Kids Crafts for Thanksgiving


  1. Use a glue stick to glue together two giant sheets of white construction paper, slightly overlapping them. 
  2. Use the markers to write Happy Thanksgiving. Around the writing use a black marker to draw leaves, pumpkins and even a turkey. Only draw the outlines. 
  3. Set the kids table for Thanksgiving, and put this down the center of the table and give the kids crayons to color in the scene you drew.
