Then count and record how many of each they found.

THANKSGIVING MATCHING GAME
I always loved those memory matching games as a kid. You know the ones, where you flip over cards until you find a matching pair?
It’s a great one you can play by yourself (but even more fun with a sibling).
This Thanksgiving themed memory matching game can be played by toddlers and preschoolers or elementary kids. You can change up the difficulty level depending on age.
I’ve made a matching set of words so that kids can work on vocabulary and memory at the same time but if you’ve got a toddler or younger kiddos you could simply print out 2 copies of the Thanksgiving picture cards and match those instead.

THANKSGIVING WORD SCRAMBLE WORKSHEET PDF
Here’s another fun Thanksgiving worksheet for the older kids. Can you unscramble all the Thanksgiving-themed words in the list?
Fear now, if you can’t quite figure them all out, there’s an answer key at the bottom.
FREE PRINTABLE THANKSGIVING GRATITUDE CARDS FOR KIDS
Another great activity to keep kids busy is to have them write out little gratitude cards to hand out to family and friends. They’ll love writing a special message of thanks and delivering their messages to loved ones.
This is one of the most popular Thanksgiving activities from our classroom. The kids absolutely loved making little mailboxes and delivering their letters to classmates and friends.
They make such a sweet keepsake too! I love doing this one with the adults at the table too. We add them to our scrapbook and bring them out to read each year while we add our new cards.
THANKSGIVING GRATITUDE SCAVENGER HUNT
Last, but certainly not least is this fun Thanksgiving gratitude scavenger hunt. This isn’t your typical scavenger hunt because it includes lots of fun gratitude activities as well.
After all, this time of year is all about giving thanks for our many blessings.
This scavenger hunt features some typical thanksgiving stuff to find like: a turkey, cranberry sauce, leaves, and acorns.
But, there’s also some more thoughtful stuff like thanking someone who’s taught you something new. Or finding something in nature you love. Or finding something that’s meaningful to you. You could even use the gratitude cards above with this activity.
Gratitude is something we need to practice with kids all year long. That’s why I always gift my students this 3 -Minute Gratitude Journal every year.
It’s the perfect way to start our mornings in the classroom. It is a self-exploration journal designed to focus on being thankful for what we have, the big things in life, as well as the simple joys.
WRAPPING UP THANKSGIVING WORKSHEETS FOR KIDS
I hope you’ve found tons of fun Thanksgiving activities and games to keep the kids busy (whether that’s for the classroom or at home while you’re busy cooking up a fabulous meal).
Have yourself a wonderful Thanksgiving and don’t forget to count your blessings. There’s so much to be grateful for.
If you loved these, I want to hear it! Leave me a comment. Or if you’re looking for something you couldn’t find, let me know. I’m always adding more stuff.
