Thanksgiving Coloring Pages

Enjoy a bounty of arts and crafts fun for fall with printable Thanksgiving coloring pages and harvest season activity sheets.

I've collected links to the best printable harvest coloring pages (on family-friendly sites) and activity sheets for this article.

You'll find printable coloring sheets with traditional Thanksgiving themes along with smaller organized sets of coloring pages with a single theme, for example: turkey coloring pages, Pilgrims and native Americans, harvest season pictures and bountiful feasts. Kids will enjoy the cut and paste activities to color and then use to create crafts and decorations for home or classroom. There's also a selection of printable games and puzzles, and fun pencil games with harvest themes.

All coloring page illustrations on this page are my own work.

Visit my web sites to find printable Thanksgiving posters, coloring pages and crafts.

Thanksgiving was always the special holiday in our family when each of us - 6 kids - learned the basics of setting the table. Coloring in a place mat with plate, knife, fork and spoon teaches the basic of table setting for any day, and is a fun activity to keep kids busy before your family feast celebration.
