Hey there, can you believe Thanksgiving is coming so fast?! I know things can get crazy, so let’s keep this short and sweet! If you think you’ll need the kids to be occupied for a few minutes while you finish up preparing for your big Thanksgiving feast then I’ve got just what you need. Keep the kids busy – and out of the kitchen! – with this Thanksgiving activity placemat. The activities range in skill level and are targeted at kids ages 5-12. Although, my 3 year old thinks he needs one too, just because his big brother have one. Older kids may have to help younger ones with reading and spelling.
THANKSGIVING ACTIVITY PLACEMAT
I tried to include at least one activity that almost all ages could complete. Hopefully, with a word search, maze, fill in the bubble and a word match game there will be something that everyone can enjoy. When the kids get wiggly again, turn the paper over and make turkeys by tracing their hands and making the fingers into feathers. That’s one of my favorite memories of Thanksgiving with my grandma.

Hand out the crayons and watch what happens. We often have more than just the kids try out these Thanksgiving activity placemats. Which means there are usually other adults around to help keep an eye on the kids while I finish kitchen preparations.
Happy Thanksgiving… I can almost taste the mashed potatoes now!
