If you’ve been following us this season, you know we’ve already discovered some amazing printables for Thanksgiving. And while these activities should buy you at least some free time Thanksgiving morning to conquer your cooking, we thought a larger-scale printable could be helpful too.

I was excited to discover these printable posters from Caravan, which encourage kids to creatively express their gratitude and decorate the walls — all without damaging the interiors of your home. I love the GIANT Thanksgiving Coloring Poster that offers a mind-boggling amount (seriously, whoa!) of Thanksgiving-themed detail for kids to fill in with a marker or crayon. And check out the very cool Draw Together Thankful Tree that lets kids write in whatever it is they are grateful for on leaves and then stick them to the branches of this floor-to-ceiling tree. It’s like the Thankful Turkeys we love so much, but easier, since so much of the crafting work is done for you.

Even besides the distraction factor (which we’re very grateful for), I think these printable posters make the best Thanksgiving Day decorations. Plus, they look like so much fun, I’m pretty sure the whole family will enjoy getting in on the action.

You can purchase the Thankful Tree and Coloring Poster digital files at Caravan Shoppe and then print at your nearest office supply store before the big day.
