Keep clicking to check out all the Thanksgiving craft cuteness.

  • Mayflower Ship: This printable Mayflower can turn into a napkin clip when glued to a clothespin. Download the pattern yourself, or use the design as a template and let your kids go crazy designing their own ships.
  • Feather Headbands: So cute and so easy, these turkey feather headbands from Mer Mag allow kids to express their creativity. Cut your own out of card stock, or download Mer Mag's headband template.
  • Alphabet Pie-Topper: Oh Happy Day's charming pie-topper might take a little help from Mom, but coming up with personalized sweet sentiments - made from alphabet pasta - will delight older kids. (And it will add some cuteness to the humble pie!)
  • Paper-Bag Turkey: One Charming Party's paper-bag turkey would make the perfect kids' table centerpiece, with predinner snacks included!
  • Thanksgiving Leaves: Mirabelle Creations created the cutest kids' table with tons of printables, but the branch centerpiece is the easiest to re-create for your own Thanksgiving celebration. Cut out leaves, add a message about what you're grateful for, hang them on branches, and voilà: Thanksgiving cuteness that embraces the holiday's spirit.
  • Thanksgiving Dinner : Lisa Storms's Thanksgiving "dinner" includes multiple adorable paper crafts that will delight kid guests. Why not have your own kids make them?!
