Printable Thanksgiving Planner {Editable PDF}


~ Originally posted October 16, 2020 ~

I think we all know that the holidays are going to be a little different this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ourselves and keep our family traditions alive.

So, if you’re hosting Thanksgiving for the first time and not sure how you're going to get the house organized, plan a menu, and make a turkey & a dozen side dishes with just one oven and limited fridge space?

Take a deep breath, print this planner, and start applying order to the chaos of the season!

The all-new Thanksgiving has been designed to become your go-to holiday Planning System.

Let’s take a quick look at what’s included.

This planner includes 22 EDITABLE pages.

Before I started the Krafty Planner, I used to have a blog called the Krafty Owl and I included these cute little owls on a lot of my planners.

I haven’t been using them since I changed the blog’s name but I really love owls and have missed using them on my printables. So I decided to bring them back, I hope you like them as much as I do!

There are three super cute covers to choose from or you can use them for wall-art if you want 😊

Whether you’ve hosted a dozen Thanksgiving dinners or this is your first one, everyone can use a checklist!

This checklist will help keep your Thanksgiving stress-free and organized so you can sit back and relax with your friends and family.

Plus, you will never overcook (or undercook) your turkey again with the Turkey Roasting Chart.

It’s been a huge help to me in the past when trying to figure out what size turkey we needed and how long to cook it.

The handy Thanksgiving week planning pages are perfect as an extension of the checklist.

Migrate any unfinished tasks from your checklist to the planning pages to help keep you on track.

Your Thanksgiving menu is the most important part of your planning so I wanted to give you multiple layouts to make sure you have the one that works best for you.

And of course, you need a Thanksgiving shopping list so you don’t forget anything at the store.

There’s nothing worse than realizing you forgot the cranberries as you’re sitting down to eat.

We all have favorite family recipes that we cherish and because we love them so much, they should be recorded.

Even though these pages are editable, I suggest that you print a few of these pages and handwrite your recipes. You’re children and grandchildren will love you for it in the future!

Before You Go:

Here are a few more posts you might like:



If you’re going to be printing in color, I really recommend investing in an HP Instant Ink compatible printer. The quality of the finished product is amazing! If you don’t need a color printer, I highly recommend a laser printer like the Brother L23 Series. You will save hundreds on ink. You can also get a color laser printer which I would LOVE to have!


For everyday printables, planners, and coloring pages for the kiddos I normally use Hammermill Printer Paper, 20 Lb. I love that you can get a small box of 3 reams instead of having to buy one at a time or a whole case of 10.

If I want something a little nicer, I use this laser paper which is incredibly smooth and has very little to no ghosting on the other side. This is perfect if you like to use pens/markers that are prone to bleeding through to the other side.

For printing on A5 paper, I use this Blank 6-Hole Punched A5 Paper. You can also get it without the holes but it’s $6-7 more. Which I think is odd because it’s usually the other way around and you have to pay more for the hole punching.

If you're printing a binder cover that you to be fade-resistant and last a long time, the best paper I would recommend using Epson Presentation paper. It's heavy like cardstock (48 lb), is great when laminated, and is made to last for decades.
