Free Printable Thanksgiving Activities. Need I say more? Between the Macy’s parade and these totally doable crafts, your toddler (or big kid) will be occupied until the turkey is on the table.

Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet and I already feel like I ate too many mashed potatoes.

Is that even a thing?

Can anyone really eat too many mashed potatoes?

I mean, can they?

Let’s go ahead and file that question in the “ask me at 10PM after Thanksgiving dinner” category.

Speaking of eat-till-you-can’t-eat-no-more, are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? If so, I implore you to make more potatoes than you think you’ll need. JUST TRUST ME. And pie. Also have additional pie on hand.

So. Let’s get to why we’re all here. Free printable crafts. There is no better way to celebrate the holiday season than by going all out Ultimate-Pinterest-Craft-Level-Supreme.

These Free Printable Thanksgiving Activities are the perfect way to entertain your toddler, preschooler, or big kid on turkey day (or even to fill up your already over-filled wall of toddler crafts). Either way, stuffing is in the oven, mashed potatoes are almost ready, and there are crafts to be crafted. And then pie.

Who doesn’t love a good mason jar project? This is the perfect way to keep the kid’s art supplies organized on Turkey Day. It also makes a super cute centerpiece for the kid’s table. Instead of art supplies, you could also fill it with plastic utensils!
