When is Thanksgiving 2023?
Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, which will be 23rd November in 2023.
"Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off'rings, and a thankful strain."
A Note About Our Thanksgiving Activities for Kids
Although we are based in the UK, our Thanksgiving activities have been made with our American visitors in mind - so you will find American spellings available for all our printables ("color" instead of "colour", for example) even if the link and image shows the English spelling.
Whether you are looking for a funny Thanksgiving turkey colouring page, a detailed Thanksgiving card to colour and send to family or a simple "colour by number" activity for younger children, we've got something for you here!
It is always fun to "theme" your learning activities for the holidays, whether you are teaching children at school or at home. We've got some fun Thanksgiving learning activities and worksheets to explore here.
Click through to explore our huge collection of Thanksgiving printables - everything from Thanksgiving themed lacing cards, playdough mats and jigsaws for younger kids, to party printables for your Thanksgiving table, to Thanksgiving display posters, letters and banners for your classroom. Children can even learn how to draw Thanksgiving pictures with our step by step tutorials! There is so much printable fun here.

More for the Season
We call it autumn - Americans call it fall. Whatever you call it, its the season of Thanksgiving. Almost all our "autumn" activities come with a "fall" version too, so you can choose the term that you use.
More to Explore
Apart from Thanksgiving (and Christmas), of course the other big American holiday is Fourth of July, so we've included a link to our Fourth of July resources here, as well as a few other sections at Activity Village that you might enjoy exploring.
