Free Thanksgiving Activity: How to Draw Scarecrow, Turkeys and Pilgrims for Thanksgiving. 

I designed this activity for the classroom teacher, so it's easy for you to make fun, memorable, and lasting art projects with your students in the classroom! 

Art teachers will love this packet because it has handouts, coloring sheets, and examples to use in your classes. 

 Follow along with my 

"6 Easy Steps" handouts to make one, or all, of the following Thanksgiving pictures:

  • 1 Scarecrow
  • 2 Turkey Designs
  • 1 Boy Pilgrim
  • 1 Girl Pilgrim

As an art teacher who teaches drawing all the time, I have this down to a science! In this unit, I will show you the easiest way (anyone can do it) I have found to teach my students to draw. I will give you an example for one of the handouts in this packet and tell you precisely word-for-word what to say to your students. 

In this packet, you will not only get my instructions on how to teach, but you will also get 5 "How-to-draw in 6 easy steps" handouts breaking each Thanksgiving image down into 6 easy steps. I've used these with students as young as kindergarten, and I know they work. 

You can decide what medium you want to use. Go fancy with paint or keep it simple with crayons—or anywhere in between—it's entirely up to you! 

I have included 5 coloring sheets and a bonus so you can let the students have a full-size image of the Thanksgiving pictures (if you want to). 

I hope this makes your teaching life a little bit easier and that this unit makes your Thanksgiving unit memorable with your class.

You don't have to be an art teacher to infuse art into your classroom - you just need to know one (and that someone is me!). Thank you for supporting my work and infusing your classroom with art!
