Thanksgiving is a time for expressing gratitude and celebrating with loved ones. One wonderful way to make this holiday even more special is by creating Thanksgiving projects with your kindergarteners. These DIY ideas are not only fun, but they also bring families together. In this blog, we'll explore simple Thanksgiving projects that you can do with items you already have at home.


01.Handprint Turkeys

Create adorable handprint turkeys with your kindergarteners.


  • White paper
  • Paint in fall colors
  • Paintbrush
  • A willing pair of kindergarten hands
Paint your child's hand with the fall colors of your choice. Carefully press the painted hand onto the paper to create the turkey's feathers. Add a beak, eye, and feet with paint or markers. Let it dry and your handprint turkey is ready!
This project can be personalized with our engraving pencils, adding names or special messages to the artwork.

02. Thank-You Cards

Encourage gratitude in your kindergartener by making thank-you cards.


  • Construction paper or cardstock
  • Markers, stickers, or any decorating supplies
  • Your child's creativity

Help your child fold the paper in half to create a card. Have your kindergartener draw pictures, write thank-you messages, or use stickers to decorate the card. These cards are perfect for expressing gratitude to family members or friends during Thanksgiving. Don't forget to use the Customizer to make these cards even more personal and special.


03: Fall Leaf Crafts

Go on a fall leaf scavenger hunt and use the leaves for creative projects.


  • Collected fall leaves
  • Glue
  • Paper or cardboard
  • String (optional)
Glue the leaves onto the paper or cardboard to create a beautiful autumn scene. You can add string to hang these leaf creations as decorations. Consider using our engraving pencils to add a unique touch to your fall leaf crafts.

04.Paper Pumpkins

Make colorful paper pumpkins for Thanksgiving decor.


  • Orange, green, and brown construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Optional: Engraving pencils for personalization

Cut the orange paper into strips. Create a loop with each strip and glue the ends together to form a circle. Attach all the circles together to form the pumpkin shape. Add a green stem and brown leaves to complete the look. Personalize these paper pumpkins with names or messages using our engraving pencils.


These Thanksgiving projects are a fantastic way to bond with your kindergarteners and create lasting memories. They're not only easy to make but also allow for personalization with our engraving pencils. Get creative and enjoy the joy of crafting together as a family this Thanksgiving season.
