Mayflower Printable

Mayflower Printable

The Mayflower is my favorite Thanksgiving printable because it carried some of the first pilgrims to the New World. This portrayal of the Mayflower is designed beautifully and works as a terrific coloring page to help children think about when immigration to America began.

Even though we expect the sails to be white and the ship to be brown, let the kids color in the shapes however they please. The ship is very detailed and could challenge older children to color within the lines and use different colors.

An Ordinary Turkey

This first turkey printable is perfect for kids who are just starting to stretch their artistic wings (pun intended). The design provides enough leeway for beginners to color outside the lines and ensures the final product still looks great.

Having this printable with the next, more complex turkey design can help you prepare appropriate coloring material for kids of different age groups and abilities.

A Pilgrim Turkey

This turkey dressed as a Pilgrim has a little more detail. He's a fun image that the kids can use to experiment with different color patterns.

Don't leave out the adults just because this involves coloring! Both turkey printables are a fun choice for grown-ups who want to join the fun. The colored pages can be incorporated into the party d├ęcor and add a fun, personal touch to your festivities.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

What is Thanksgiving without a turkey dinner? The holiday traditionally commemorates the pilgrims' first harvest after being taught how to work the land by Squanto, a member of the Pawtuxet tribe, and the Wampanoags. The original celebratory feast lasted for three days and involved various hunting expeditions. We don't know for certain if turkeys were on the menu, but the American fowl is now the main dish of the Thanksgiving meal.

This Charlie Brown coloring page is a lot of fun and great for kids of all ages. Snoopy, the chef, has come from the kitchen to proudly present the turkey dinner to a smiling Charlie Brown.

A More Historical Thanksgiving

In the second Thanksgiving dinner printable, a family carries out the turkey to share with everyone. The little girl clings to her mother's dress in excitement and shows the anticipation for the feast.

Native American and Pilgrim Children

The first Thanksgiving was a gathering of Pilgrims and Native Americans, and these coloring pages can aid the discussion of the holiday's history. The printable of the Pilgrim girl and Native American boy is sure to intrigue the children and help them ask questions about the history behind Thanksgiving.

Native American and Pilgrim Adults

A grown-up variation of the prior image shows both the Native American and Pilgrim adults looking eager to dive into the feast. The details and different objects in this coloring page can encourage kids to use many different colors.

Final Words

Thanksgiving printables are a terrific way to involve kids and adults in the holiday festivities as they wait for the turkey (or ham) to arrive. What's great about these coloring pages is knowing you'll never run out of designs and options for your little ones. Once a page is finished, you can quickly find another to continue their artistic entertainment.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!
