These free Thanksgiving color by number printables are a fantastic way to both entertain and educate your kid this holiday season. Choose from three color by number worksheets, Thanksgiving-themed, below!
While you’re chopping and scrubbing, stirring and straightening in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, what will your kid be doing? Bouncing off the walls, thanks to leftover Halloween candy? Trailing behind you chanting “I’m bored?” Trying to “help,” which, well, we all know how that goes?
Instead of any (or all) of that, how about you entertain him or her with these printable Thanksgiving color by number worksheets?
In addition to captivating your kid, these color by number Thanksgiving pictures will also challenge him or her. Yep, they pack an educational punch! However, that’ll be our little secret because your child will be having so much fun he or she won’t realize learning is involved. It’s sort of like sneaking veggies into cookies. 😉
These Thanksgiving color by number printables offer all the “standard” cognitive and mental benefits of coloring such as decreasing anxiety, boosting creativity and confidence, and improving fine motor coordination plus improving:
- Problem solving skills.
- Number recognition.
- Concentration and focus.
- Attention to detail and the ability to follow instructions.
I think these are probably most appropriate as color by number worksheets for kindergarten Thanksgiving activities or older. In other words, they may be a little too detailed for preschoolers, but keep reading because I have preschooler appropriate Thanksgiving activities too! 🙂
Thanksgiving Color by Number Printables: Tiny Turkey
Instead of Tiny Tim (A Christmas Carol), this color by number Thanksgiving turkey worksheet offers Tiny Turkey. This cute little guy comes bearing gifts like pumpkins, apples, corn, and even a pie. Yum!
Bonus: As already mentioned, these probably aren’t the best fit for toddlers. They’re color by number worksheets for kindergarten Thanksgiving activities or kids older than kindergarten. However, if you have a preschooler at home, here are some fun, frugal, and beneficial Thanksgiving activities to check out!

Thanksgiving Color by Number Printables: A Bumpus Hound
Okay, I’m about to date myself … remember in the movie A Christmas Story when the neighbor’s dogs (the Bumpuses) get into the house and eat the Christmas turkey? If you’re too young, just do a quick YouTube search for the scene. I’ll wait.
Back? This free color by number Thanksgiving worksheet reminds me of that scene! Obviously it’s a color by number Thanksgiving turkey printable, not a Christmas-themed version, but still. This little Bumpus hound is about to cause a lot of trouble, don’t you think? 😉
