Whether you’re a parent looking for a rainy day turkey craft or a therapist reinforcing a speech and language goal, it is fun to find interesting crafts for your preschooler to make around this Thanksgiving theme. I have found that kids are motivated to say their sounds, practice their grammar, follow directions and describe their craft when they have a fun project to make. Here are a few resources that can be helpful:
- First-School Preschool Activities and Crafts has several options for making turkeys with maple leaves, hand prints and pine cones.
- Step by Step has turkey book lists, songs and finger plays set to familiar tunes and many ideas for turkey art
- Kinder Plans has Thanksgiving lesson plans with cute crafts to support the lessons like turkeys made from coffee filters, paper bags and hand prints.
- Parents Magazine shares some turkey day crafts and Thanksgiving printables.
