Thanksgiving Coloring, Harvest Activity Pages and Crafts

Harvest season means it's time for Thanksgiving printables and paper crafts. Thanksgiving coloring pages offer plenty of artistic inspiration to children and artists. Have fun with these printable coloring pages and harvest paper craft activity sheets for kids and adults.

Giving Thanks and Keeping Centered

Our large extended family is scattered across the USA from the East Coast to the mid-West, from New England to Florida. When we have a gathering, it's a big and loud and kid-filled event so we try to make sure the entertainment includes child-friendly activities to the youngest family members enjoy the reunion as much as we grownup types do.

Coloring crafts and art supplies are always available, along with a variety of games and special activities that build social skills without involving electronics ... if the television, computer or hand held devices appear, we keep their use limited and related to what's happening for the day.

For this "restriction" to being in the now when our family is all together, I am thankful.

    What a fabulous resource for Thanksgiving printables! I loved the turkey placemat coloring page. I can easily imagine the children enjoying coloring that picture, but I bet we would have several adult "artist" who would enjoy creating a work of art too this Thanksgiving. Totally awesome!
