Creative Family Thanksgiving Art Projects

Thanksgiving is upon us and there is nothing better than spending time with your loved ones. Since I spend a lot of time cooking for the most part of the day I like to find activities I can do with the kids in between.


This Thanksgiving, get inspired and create new traditions and memories with a little creativity and a lot of color! Just in time for the holiday, Crayola is encouraging families to spend time together making festive decorations for the home and Thanksgiving table.

From one-of-a-kind centerpieces to handmade turkeys, parents and children can select from a number of craft activities to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
Use Crayola’s proprietary Model Magic modeling compound to make festive Model Magic turkeys that will add originality to the Thanksgiving table.
Get nostalgic by creating a “talking turkey” centerpiece that includes each family member writing a message of gratitude on paper feathers.

Check out this video and this video to get your creative juices flowing!

Have a colorful Thanksgiving!
