This year, you might be hosting Thanksgiving dinner or going to a gathering with family or friends. It can be a lot for parents to ensure their little ones are kept busy and entertained on Turkey Day while cooking, eating, and general merriment ensues. If you’re looking for fun activities to do as a family or just want a way to occupy your toddler indoors without a screen this Thanksgiving Day, we’re giving back to you in a small way by creating some free downloadable Thanksgiving coloring pages for kids.
From a turkey and fall leaves to a slice of pumpkin pie and a cornucopia, we hope these coloring pages spark your children’s creativity and keep them occupied—if just for a little while. Scroll down to download the coloring pages and be sure to tag us on Instagram (@theeverymom) to show off your LO’s creations!
Does anything say Thanksgiving like a turkey? Encourage your little ones to fill in this cute bird with classic Thanksgiving colors (reds, browns, yellows, and oranges come to mind) to celebrate the season.
Though many houses are already decorated for Hanukkah or Christmas, Thanksgiving is still a big part of the fall season—don’t forget to appreciate the beautiful fall leaves while they’re still here! Have your kids work on coloring within the lines with this printable page and teach them about the unique shapes, sizes, and colors of leaves that fall from different trees.
Are you team pumpkin pie or team pecan pie on Thanksgiving Day? Color in this slice of pumpkin pie (complete with a dollop of whipped cream) while getting ready to enjoy some delicious desserts on November 23.
A classic Thanksgiving symbol, the cornucopia represents an abundance of good things and is typically made of a hollow, horn-shaped wicker basket overflowing with festive fruits and vegetables. Though you might not have a real cornucopia on your family’s Thanksgiving table this year, it appeared at the first Thanksgiving gathering, which was a celebration of the fall harvest.
Thanksgiving is all about being grateful and giving thanks for all that we have—and that’s a sentiment that’s important year-round. Teach your little ones about the meaning of Thanksgiving and gratitude with this “Give Thanks” coloring page. It can also help your kids practice their letters!
