{Thanksgiving} kids table

Having kids at your Thanksgiving festivities? Here are a few simple ideas to add to your kids table. See all of our ideas from year’s past here.

Start by covering the table in white paper. This way after dinner kids can keep busy drawing pictures and playing games (tic-tac-toe, anyone?). We added a fun table runner and lots of leaves. Don’t be afraid to use real dishes. We used small china plates and fun glasses we found at a local thrift shop. Give kids sparkling cider or apple cider for a fun treat. Small carmel apples make great place cards, and are an added dessert or can be sent home for later.

We’re sharing one last Thanksgiving project with you before the big day tomorrow. We found this free printable from Craftily Ever After last fall and fell in love with it.  Its simple message and beautiful design made for a perfect Thanksgiving decoration.  We printed it to fit in a frame we already had on hand and set it out to enjoy.

This is a perfect last minute decoration for your Thanksgiving celebration.

Thank you so much to Jessica at Craftily Ever After for her wonderful printable. Visit Craftily Ever After by clicking the link in the previous sentence and you can download your copy of the printable.


last minute thanksgiving projects: day 2

Today’s last minute project comes from Silly Eagle Books.  These adorable turkeys were made with feathers, googly eyes, construction paper, glue,  and toilet paper tubes. Children of all ages will enjoy making a turkey and it is so simple even a younger child could do it almost on his/her own (although some patience may be required with the colored feathers).

This would be a great project to set up at a craft table for any children at your Thanksgiving celebration.  Just leave out the supplies and the kids will be able to get creative all on their own.  If you don’t have any feathers don’t fret we think paper feathers would be just as cute!
