These Thanksgiving activities for kids are the perfect way to learn about Thanksgiving and practice learning activities at the same time.

Some of my favorite October and November activities for preschool are fall activities and Thanksgiving activities.

One of the best ways to teach children is through preschool themes. Since Thanksgiving is a holiday, it makes it a perfect theme for children to explore more about since they are seeing it and hearing about it all around!

These thanksgiving activities and turkey activities are perfect for encouraging children to practice math, colors, the alphabet, literacy skills, fine motor skills and so much more. We especially love that they are hands-on Thanksgiving activities so children are learning with their senses!

Thanksgiving Activities for Kids

Whether you need activities for a Thanksgiving lesson plan, a Thanksgiving theme, or just to keep your preschooler entertained, these turkey activities and Thanksgiving activities for kids should do the trick!

Thanksgiving Math Activities

This Turkey Color & Number Match  is an inviting way to help children practice learning their colors and is a simple Thanksgiving math activity at the same time.

Dice games are always a hit with preschoolers and a great way to incorporate a math center for Thanksgiving. This Fine Motor Turkey Math is perfect for that!

Do your kids like memory games as much as mine do? This Turkey Memory Game looks SO much fun to not only play but make too!

Turkeys are typically round but that doesn’t mean they HAVE to be. This Shape Turkey is a fantastic way to adapt and show children how to explore shapes!

Thanksgiving Art Activities

This Bubble Wrap Turkey is an inexpensive and extremely creative way to paint turkeys as a Thanksgiving art activity. The final result looks textured and super colorful!

It is exciting to be inventive while doing arts and crafts. This Dish Brush Turkey  Thanksgiving art activity is a perfect example! Who knew a dish brush could create such beautiful art!

My kids love going into the paint section at the store and snagging paint chips. Sometimes they just sit there but not very often. Crafting with them is SO MUCH FUN. How adorable is this Paint Chip Turkey??

Handprint crafts always hold a special place in my heart. It’s hard to think that our children’s hands will never be as small as they are right now. This Thankful Tree is cute but also so sentimental and a perfect gratefulness activity! It would be perfect to go along with these books about gratitude and thankfulness.
