Thanksgiving Kids' Table

Gathering extended family together on Thanksgiving Day adds quality to life. There is excitement in the air as guests start to arrive and greet each other and catch up. Children especially love to visit their cousins at the holidays. When entertaining, always keep in mind that invited children are guests too. Having an activity table for the kids that can double as a dining table can be invaluable at holiday gatherings.

My six grandchildren love to have their own kids' table with activities. On a busy day like Thanksgiving, offer crafts that are simple and fun. Try these easy ideas to keep your young guests entertained. As always for safety, adult supervision is required.

  • Set up a Lifetime Children’s Folding Picnic Table and cover with a sheet of white butcher paper and fasten with tape. Have washable markers and show the kids how to decorate their table with colorful turkeys by tracing the outline of their open hand with a marker. Draw a beak and eyes on the thumb and feet at the bottom of the handprint and then color the fingers as turkey feathers
  • Have a bowl of miniature pumpkins to decorate along with stickers, glitter pens and markers
  • Go to http://crafts.kaboose.com/holidays/thanksgiving/index.html to print out free Thanksgiving coloring pages, puzzles and mazes to keep the kids amused.
  • Pasta necklaces are fun to make. In advance, color assorted pasta shapes by putting into a zipper lock bag. Add 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol and a few drops of food coloring and shake. Let the kids string the pasta onto lengths of yarn for festive necklaces.
  • Set aside time in the day for all family members to share something they are thankful for. This puts the focus on the “Thanksgiving” part of the day.
