I'm looking for some fun Thanksgiving crafts and activities for kids 5 and under. I'd love to have my kids create something we can use to decorate the table, so they feel like they're contributing to the meal.

What about a twist on handprint turkeys? After the kids make them have them cut them out and glue them to a craft stick and you have a puppet!

I am cutting out leaves on orange, yellow, and light brown paper in different shapes so the kiddos can write things they are thankful for on them. Then I'm planning to scatter them around the dinner table. I used these leaf outlines to create stencils.

Placecards and napkin rings jump to mind.
Young kids who can't write can draw pictures of each person, or if you're a planning-ahead type you could print out pics of family members and let them at it with glue sticks and stickers.
Beads strung on pipe cleaners make great napkin rings.

We do a popcorn turkey every year and the kids love to have a turkey they can carve. I also make pumpkin play dough and supply lots of art at the kids table.

I love hand print turkeys. There are so many ways to decorate their feathers and make their feet.
