One of my favorite parts of being a mom is being in charge of teaching my kids about the holidays and traditions. Traditions create happiness fun anticipation and wonderful memories. In the month of November in my house, we focus on practicing gratitude every day. One of the main themes we find ourselves thankful for is food yummy. Ending our Focus month with a feast celebrating everything that we are thankful for. Very young children don’t always help with all the cooking and having some fun felt DIY toys can make them feel a part of the feast even more. Use the Easy Thanksgiving Dinner Felt DIY to practice gratitude and learn through play. Be sure to add them to your Thanksgiving Busy Box.

Thanksgiving is the largest eating event in the United States. Even though I truly like to make it about practicing the mindfulness of gratitude it goes without saying food should be a part of the tradition.
This Thanksgiving dinner felt DIY will include a table, a turkey, corn, bread, pumpkin pie, apple pie, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, plates, forks, knives, and spoons. The Thanksgiving Dinner Felt DIY can be used on Thanksgiving day and I recommend adding it to your Thanksgiving Busy Box to play with all of November.
This is great for young children who are learning about Thanksgiving traditions. Toddlers and preschoolers who are just learning and remembering holiday traditions. It’s fun for kinesthetic learners who can have hands-on practice setting a feast. You can use it together right before eating by having each family member add a part of the felt feast to the table and share something with the family for which they are thankful. It is a cool way to model how to be mindful about the practice of gratitude. Every time your kiddo plates with the FeltFeast they will remember those Thankful thoughts.
Felt is one of my favorite ways to create learning toys for kids. It is colorful, soft, durable, and easy to work with. If you enjoy this Thanksgiving Dinner Felt DIY check out my Christmas Advent Nativity Felt DIY!
