November crafts, activities, and recipes for families with a focus on connecting and celebrating the season together in a meaningful way.
Updated September 2021
With Thanksgiving and then the Christmas holidays upon us, it’s time for a little extra family connection and celebration. We can do this through holiday and November crafts, meaningful activities, and tasty Autumnal foods.
While this time of year can tend towards busy or hectic, it also provides an opportunity to gather my family and friends around me, pull them in close, and connect through creativity. It’s also an opportunity to celebrate what we are thankful for, the seasons, the beauty of the natural world, the holidays, and old and new family traditions.
So I put together a list of November crafts, activities, and recipes to refer to as a reminder and reference for myself and also for you, in case you too want to be a little extra thoughtful about connecting and celebrating together this year?
13 November Crafts and Activities for Families
1. Make a thankful bunting together
3. Discuss family traditions, history, and preferences. If you need some engaging prompts, try this conversation starter pack.
4. Make thankful stones. Start with melted crayon rocks and write what you are thankful for on each with a black Sharpie marker.
5. Experiment with different ways to draw turkeys (and other seasonal images)
6. Have everyone in your family make maps of their hearts (this is such a sweet activity to do every once in a while!)
8. Get started making some thoughtful homemade gifts for your friends and family
10. Start making salt dough ornaments for the Christmas tree (or for whatever holiday you celebrate!)
12. Have a special family movie night
13. Celebrate your family through a family photo card (take the pic now!)
Hopefully some of these ideas are helpful reminders of something you’d like to do this month and perhaps some will be the start of new family traditions for you.
