Easy tips for a kid's Thanksgiving table.

November 10, 2017

I love including the kids in all of the holiday festivities! Below, you can see what I created, along with my easy to follow tips.

Make sure you save a designated area for the kiddies

This could be a small area in your dining room, or even a spot outside. Here in California, we end up doing a lot of outdoor dining, even in November. 

Make your kid tablescape fun & inviting

You can add a placemat that has games & coloring options. Or you can set out a few coloring books for each guest. I also made sure their table had easy access to cupcakes & turkey shaped suckers. I found the suckers at Tai Pan TradingThey were displayed in a darling mason jar from Just Add GlitterMarla creates such beautiful jars - I love using them in all of my parties! 

Set out smaller & easy to handle cups & dishes

There are lots of kid-friendly dining options, and cute plates are one of them! I scooped up these plastic raccoon shaped plates, and matching cups from Walmart. The placemat is from Hobby Lobby. 
My no-fuss table cover was nothing more than a couple yards of burlap from JoAnn fabrics. 

 Embellish a few things with festive printables

I came across a darling Thanksgiving themed printable set from Dimple PrintsThey were offering a huge printable set as a free download on their site. Lots of fun items to choose from! I added the circle toppers to our cupcakes, and wrapped them with their printable wraps. The turkey straw flags were a hit, on the polka dotted straws, from Target. 

In addition to the kid’s table that was filled with treats & coloring books, we brought out our mini covered wagon! I added a bushel of fake vegetables, a fall wreath, and a gorgeous ‘Be Thankful’ banner.  

The banner is beautifully hand crafted with burlap, and festive die cut pieces. Rina from Mothership Scrapbook Gal did a fantastic job on it! 

 Not only will the covered wagon serve as a neat backdrop for our little guests’ area, but the kids will have a blast playing inside, and letting their imaginations soar. And when you mix imaginations, kids, family, and great food, you’ve created a recipe for a memorable event! It doesn’t get much better than that! Wishing you & your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
