If you are a school teacher or just a busy parent, Thanksgiving coloring pages can be a lifesaver when you are looking for a way to keep your child occupied for a certain period of time.  You can find Thanksgiving coloring pages in many places on the Internet that are free for download directly to your printer.

Do you want some suggestions for web sites that you can go to so you can find Thanksgiving coloring pages?  Well, I think I can help you.   Here are some of my most favorite sites:

  • – not only does this site have many Thanksgiving coloring pages, but they also offer coloring pages for other holidays as well as some great craft ideas for you to use year-round.  This web site is, by far, the best resource you will find for not only Thanksgiving coloring pages, but also for learning activities and crafts as well.  Of course, that’s my opinion!
  • – we like this web site because it has lots of coloring pages but it also has lots of interactive learning activities including some that help children learn to read, learn about phonics, and lots of other helpful ways to learn about other subjects.
  • – with lots and lots of Thanksgiving coloring pages as well as other holiday coloring pages and resources for teachers and home schooling parents, this is a great web site to find help with all kinds of subjects from art to history to geography.  Many think that teaching across the curriculum (incorporating all subject areas into a lesson plan) is a great way to help a child learn.  This web site will certainly help in that area!

The best part about Thanksgiving coloring pages and other holiday coloring pages is that not only can they be colored and displayed, but they can also serve as templates for other crafts.  If you are looking for a picture of a pilgrim to make a craft from, look for Thanksgiving coloring pages and use the picture as a guide.
