Kid's Thanksgiving Table Ideas

    Posted by  ·  November 18, 2011

    Don’t you remember sitting at the “kids table” with your cousins during holiday meals at Grandma’s house?  It was the best!  Here are links for some really fun ideas to make this Thanksgiving a memorable one for your little guests.

    The check-off list right on the table from Hip Hip Hooray! is such a great way to entice the kids to try new foods — a little peer pressure is not such a bad thing! 😉

    Shindig Parties To Go has some cute printables to make everything you need to decorate a kid’s table.
    If you live in a warm climate, wouldn’t it be fun to set up the children’s table outside?  Savvy Moms Guide has a tutorial on a fabulous table made of hay bales, a sheet of plywood and a little burlap!  Add tree stump stools, food, and kids and you have a recipe for a wonderful feast!

    This pumpkin “turkey” from Very Heatherly would be so easy to make and would keep the kids entertained for quite awhile.

    For a treasured childhood keepsake, let the kids make these cute felt turkeys to use as place holders on their own special table.   All You has a tutorial.

      Great ideas! I can't decide if I will make the pumpkin crayon holder or the felt turkey for the kids' table. The kids are the very young crowd, 4, 3, 2 & 2!

      Love your conversation with your MIL, June K.!! That is too funny! My mom and I just had the same conversation! Isn't it funny how, in our Mom's minds, we never grow up?!? Happy Thanksgiving!

      What fun looking tables.

      Kids and grandma.... this is the conversation I had with my mother-in-law yesterday.

      Me: We are going to have a large group this Thanksgiving maybe we need to use paper plates this year.
      MIL: I have my dinner plates and the kids can use the smaller luncheon plates.
      Me: Mom, the "kids" can't use those small plates - the "kids" eat more than the "adults."

      Her grandkids are range in age from 20 to 30. Those kids will always be her small grandkids to her. :)
