Fun Thanksgiving Activities for Toddlers

Thanksgiving is like a ninja this year. It’s sneaking up on me very stealthily, ready to throw a turkey at me when I least expect it!  Last week’s  Discover & Explore  theme was Thanksgiving and there were lots of great ideas linked up- be sure to visit the original post for the full collection.  This week I chose five fun Thanksgiving activities for toddlers to feature- enjoy!

Thanksgiving Activities for Toddlers

I always love a good music craft, and this Corn Shaker from Sow Sprout Play is super fun!

These Watercolor Coffee Filter Turkey Cards from Play Dr. Hutch are also very fun- my little ones would love the process of creating the rainbow feathers!

This Bobbling Turkey Hat from How Wee Learn would provide us with many giggles and shrieks, I guarantee it :)

Considering my affinity for recycling our trash into toys for the kids (see Hungry Monster Color Sorters and Sparkly Fine Motor Spider), I couldn’t resist this Feed the Turkey game from Life With Moore Babies!
