The Kids' Table


Thanksgiving is almost here!  I had a blast scouring the internet finding some fun, yet practical,  ideas for the kids’ table.

1.  Color-full Thanksgiving Table

This resourceful mommy covered the kids’ table with brown paper bags for an instant canvas.

2.  To-Do Lists for Kids

Fun lists such as scavenger hunts, to-do list before pie, etc would be fun.

3.  Chalkboard Placemats

A tutorial for chalkboard placemats!  Amazing!

4.  Turkey Caddy

Use a Styrofoam ball to create a fun turkey that holds all the markers and crayons.

5.  Felt Turkey Placemat

Love, love, love this idea.  Perfect for any season,  occasion, and age.

6.  Free Printables

Disney Family Fun has some great printables for the table.

7.  Make your own Headdress

Kidscraftzone.com has step-by-step instructions and a feather template.

8.  Rice Krispies Treats

Really, what’s better than a Rice Krispies Treat?  Here are several recipes for Thanksgiving goodies sure to be a hit at the kids’ table.

9.  Foam Stickers

Hobby Lobby and Michaels carry these wonderful stickers in many different themes.  My son likes to put a magnet on the back of his creations to display on the frig.

10.  Beads, Popcorn, Cranberries

Kids would love making their own jewelry or getting a head start on the Christmas tree garland.  Older children can use a plastic needle to thread cranberries and popcorn.
