Crafty Crafters: Pumpkin Pie Spinner (Thanksgiving)





So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for Thanksgiving?


Here is a craft I make with my students using a paper plate:


Introduce activity/craft- What holiday is coming up in November? Thanksgiving. What does your family do for Thanksgiving? What do you eat at Thanksgiving? Why do we have Thanksgiving? Discuss. We have Thanksgiving to say thank you to God for all the things he gives us. Ask the students what they are thankful for. Let’s make something that shows what we are thankful for. After students make crafts say: Thank you God for . . . and have each student show their craft and say what they are thankful for.

Make It: Trim the edge of a paper plate rim with scallop-edge scissors, then paint the rim with a mixture of white and brown paint to resemble the color of crust. From rust-color card stock, cut a circle to fit the center of the plate and adhere it in place. Put the plate on top of a second paper plate and poke a hole through the centers, then insert a brad through the holes. Cut a slice out of the top plate (be careful to avoid the brad), add letter stickers to the top, and handwrite thankful items to the bottom plate.

*For younger students they can draw what they are thankful for instead of writing.

*You can change the wording on the craft to “Thank you God for”. For younger students you can have them draw what they are thankful for instead of writing.
