Boredom Busters – Keep the Kids Happy This Thanksgiving!

Ever hear, “Mom, I’m bored!” or “Dad – I have nothing to do!” during the holidays? Stop boredom in its tracks with these family-friendly, creative projects!

Gratitude Garland

• Construction paper
• Markers or colored pencils
• A leaf template (easily found on the internet)
• Scissors
• Twine or string

Trace the leaf template onto sheets of construction paper – any colors will do, but orange, red, yellow and brown are great fall colors. Cut out the leaves and have each member of the family write what they are thankful for on the leaves. Punch holes in the top of the leaves and tie to a length of twine. The more gratitude leaves your family creates, the longer your garland will become!

Hand Turkey Placemats

• Construction paper
• Self-laminating sheets or a laminator (optional)
• Markers
• Scissors
• Glue

Have your kids trace their hands on to construction paper then cut out the hand shape. Glue the shape on to a full piece of construction paper. The kids can then create a turkey from the hand shape using the thumb as the head and the fingers as feathers. If desired, laminate their new placemats to keep spills at bay using laminating sheets or a laminator.

Teepee Centerpiece

• Tan craft foam (usually sold in 8 ½” by 11” sheets)
• Three twigs
• Scissors
• Hot glue gun (for the adults to use)
• Markers

To create each teepee, roll a craft foam sheet into a cone shape, leaving a small opening at the top, and trim off excess. Tack in place with a hot glue gun. Ask your kids to decorate the teepees with designs using markers. You can print traditional Native American teepee art from the internet as inspiration or have them create their own! After the teepees are decorated, place the twigs through the center and glue in place.
