It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and in between grocery shopping, planning the meal, and cleaning the house, it’s a great time to decide what you’re doing for the kids attending your meal. Planning an adorable kids’ table for Thanksgiving can make the little ones feel like they are special and not sitting completely away from everyone else. And, you can incorporate cute craft ideas or small things on the table to entertain them while everyone is eating (and cleaning up!).
While we haven’t quite decided how we are setting the table for the kids yet, we have found some really cute ideas on the internet, and we are sharing them with you! (For MORE ideas, follow Pineapple Paper Co. on Pinterest HERE).
This simple idea seen on Project Nursery incorporates crayons and a Kraft paper runner so that the kids can color before or during the meal:
This is the FAVORITE table that we’ve seen this year, from Oh Happy Day. A Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade table is GENIUS.
This “Pumpkin Pie” from The Happy Scraps serves as both a centerpiece and could be used for place cards at the kids’ table. If you made a couple of other play food items, they could easily be used as pretend play during dinner.
This cute and colorful kids’ table is from one of our favorite blogger friends, Frog Prince Paperie:
This kids’ table from Lia Griffith and her team would be great for a group of kids that are a little bit older. They each can write what they are thankful for and share it during the meal:
