Thanksgiving Crafts


Balloon Parade

With balloons and your imagination, you can hold your own Thanksgiving Day Parade.

What You'll Need:

  • Balloons in assorted sizes, shapes, and colors
  • Glue
  • Permanent markers
  • String

Blow up lots of different-colored and shaped balloons. You may need an adult to help you do this.

Glue several balloons together to make animals and your favorite cartoon characters. Draw on faces and clothes.

Tie a long string to each animal or character, and march your balloony creations outside in a neighborhood Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Make a big turkey and a pilgrim. Make your family dog. Is that Superwoman flying so high in the sky?

(Caution: Balloons are choking hazards. Keep them away from small children and pick up all broken pieces immediately.)

Humans aren't the only ones to be thankful at Thanksgiving. The neighborhood birds will sing their thanks after you learn the next craft.
