40 FREE Printable Thanksgiving Coloring Pages for Kids & Adults

With the new coloring craze, I thought it would be a great idea to have a set of free Thanksgiving coloring pages to print all ready for the Thanksgiving table! 

Since both kids and adults alike enjoy this activity, it's a wonderful way to encourage multi-generational conversation while everyone's mingling and waiting for the turkey to cook. 

And it's always a great idea to have some Thanksgiving Activities and fun ways that the kids can pitch in to help!

Free Thanksgiving Coloring Pages for Kids & Adults

It's always a litte crazy here for Thanksgiving, but a good kind of crazy -- I'm cooking and pulling together our Christmas Countdown activities (have you seen these?!!) for next month.

But I like to be sure to inspire some family connectedness on holidays since we don't live close to our relatives -- so multigenerational activities are a must!

I love to have super FUN & easy Thanksgiving games the whole family can play + coloring pages for everyone too.

I didn't just want to toss some crayons and such on the table (pictures in my head of melted wax on the tablecloth made me shudder a little ;)

So I created a super quick & cute way to corral all those colored pencils, pens and crayons so they're not rolling around on the table.

I put our coloring items in an adorable Turkey coloring jar -- and of course I have a free printable for you so that you can quickly create your own, along with links to 40 festive Happy Thanksgiving coloring pages for all the kids & adults who will be celebrating with you!

The supplies for this craft are probably things you have around the house.  I'm including affiliate links for some of our favorite items too. 

All you'll need is

  • some tape


Turkey Coloring Jar | Thanksgiving coloring pages

Just print & cut out the "naked" turkey, tape it around the front of the mason jar and insert colored pencils & pens so it looks like the turkey's feathers.  Thanks to bloodsong at OpenClipArt for helping with the graphics on this!

You can also create this adorable Kids' Coloring Station from Pottery Barn if you're hosting a kids' table this year.

Then add some of these awesome coloring pages to your table!
