Free Printable Thanksgiving Activity and Coloring Book for Kids

This activity book is designed to be printed onto 3 or 6 pieces of 8.5×11 inch white printer paper or cardstock.

If you’d like, you can print one sided and use 6 pieces of paper. Alternatively, you can also uses 3 pages and print on both the front and the back.

How to print and assemble the activity and coloring book:

How to print the booklet double sided:

Print out the first 3 pages of the pdf and then place those pages back in the printer and print out the second 3 pages on the back of the paper.

Stack all of the pages together ensuring that the cover is on the front, fold the booklet in half and then staple the edge.

I would definitely recommend doing a test print to make sure that the pages are corrected aligned before printing out a bunch of booklets at once.

How to print the booklet single sided:

Alternatively, you can also print out all of the pages individually and use 6 sheets of paper. Stack them together, fold in half and then staple.

With this version, the backs of each activity will be blank. This may be a good option if you wanted to include some more coloring space for kids to do some extra drawings and doodles.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
