You’ve managed to defrost the turkey in time, plan out your potato peeling strategy, and practice fluffing the stuffing to perfection. Thanksgiving Day is ready to go!

But wait, what about the kids? Those little ones sure can get antsy while they’re waiting for the turkey to cook. Looking for an activity to keep them busy at the kid’s table? Try my Thanksgiving FREE PRINTABLE acrostic poem. Hours (ok, maybe minutes) of free entertainment!

Build thankfulness in those little hearts with this Thanksgiving poem. Acrostic poems are fun! Just have your child write the name of what they are thankful for beside the correct letter. For example, I could write turkey beside the letter “t,” or flowers beside the letter “f.”

Care to make it interesting? Offer prizes for most the creative poem, longest word, most heartfelt answer, or (for the wee ones) least number of crayons eaten before dinner. Ahem…I see you little man. I see you.
