1. Natural Vases
Take your children on a nature walk around your neighborhood and collect fallen branches from trees. Bring those branches home, rinse them off and place them in vases throughout your home. It’s amazing how something as simple as a fallen branch looks great when placed in a vase on your mantel.
2. Make a Clay Turkey
Children love to work with modeling clay and you can find great eco-friendly versions at your favorite art supply store. Give your child creative freedom to make any type of turkey they would like to display on the Thanksgiving table. You will be surprised what they can come with.
3. Napkin Rings
Grab an empty toilet paper roll from the recycling bin and have your child cut it into 3 smaller tubes. Using glue, natural elements, found objects and crafting supplies have your children decorate the rings in any way that they would like. After they dry, place them around a napkin and you have instant Thanksgiving art for the dinner table.
4. Bowl Full of Nature
Instead of buying cut flowers (that aren’t eco-friendly) for the centerpiece this Thanksgiving, let your child fill a beautiful bowl full of natural elements. Whether it is a large bowl of beautiful oranges, apples or pumpkins or a bunch of pine-cones from your back yard, this is an easy way for even the smallest of tots to decorate for Thanksgiving.
