Kid Friendly DIY Ideas for Thanksgiving

We love to help families with fun ideas to celebrate the holiday season. Here are some arts and craft ideas brought to you by our friendly staff at Dr. Andrew Kapust DDS, PS.

1. The Pom-Pom Turkey

This craft requires some brown yarn, pipe cleaners, and a few other supplies, but it’s super easy to make. Your kids will want to keep these cute lil’ turkeys around for good.

2. Fall Leaf Painting

Painting on top of backyard leaves creates graphic negative space when you peel them away. Plus, it’s an excuse to head outside and find the necessary supplies.

3. Leaf Catcher

Allow each child to write down what they’re thankful for, and then capture all of their positive thoughts into this pretty display.
