Last Minute Thanksgiving Activities for Kids. Ideas to keep the kids busy on Thanksgiving day. Plus, activities to do at the kid’s table.

The kids can get bored and feel like they are in the way on Thanksgiving day while the adults are preparing food. They might not yet like to watch football, and most of us need to keep them out of the kitchen with everything going on. For many of these activities, you may already have the supplies on hand to do them.

Last Minute Thanksgiving Activities for Kids

Build LEGOs

We are a LEGO loving household. Building LEGOs is good for all the kids and can keep them busy for a long time. First, they get to build a creation and then they can play with it. The new adorable Turkey Brick Headz is perfect for Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

Craft projects are my favorite. Some of these may need some supervision and help and others the kids can do on their own.

Have your child create some fun craft projects with items they can find outside. We made a fall leaf wreath and some cute pine cone turkeys.
