Thursday is the big day and there must be a kids table at every Thanksgiving dinner, it’s practically an American tradition. For me, growing up, it was most likely for the preservation of  fine china, crystal and family heirlooms from precocious little cousins.

Creating a decorate it yourself table for your little guests will make them feel special, and best of all, does not need to take much time or planning. Emulating this kids’ table idea from Country Living by simply using a roll of craft paper and some crayons or markers, you can easily become the favorite aunt or grandma. Not only will kiddos think that they have the best seat in the house, but this budget friendly cover, provides doodling entertainment before, during, and after the Thanksgiving dinner while waiting for pumpkin pie.

Keep your kids’ table guests happily occupied with a few colorful sticks of clay; allowing the adults more time to enjoy their meals. (Yay!) Ask the budding artists to create pieces that can be auctioned off for a few coins after everyone has finished their meals.

After dinner have the adults hold an auction. Start the bidding on the new clay sculptures with a few pennies. The young artists can be encouraged to tell stories about their creations to increase the bids.

Pass this tray of clay and tools around and let the sculpting begin. What will they make? How long can it take? Could you make something that you are thankful for?

After dinner when the table covering has become over decorated, drop this Pairs in Pears game on the table for a fast, fun and requiring no pencil, paper, or gameboard challenge.

Have an adult do the the carving honors and surprise, surprise look what you’ll find inside! The corn cobs hold a surprise inside too.  Instructions for crafting this fascinating turkey can be found here.

Growing up we always found ourselves seated at the kids table. This tradition was undoubtedly for the preservation of fine china, crystal and family heirlooms. If you will be seating little ones at a kids table, give them one they will be thankful for.

Country Living  uses a roll of craft paper and some crayons or markers for their special table.  Not only will kiddos think that they have the best seat in the house, but this budget friendly cover, provides doodling entertainment before, during, and after the Thanksgiving dinner while waiting for pumpkin pie.

The Idea Room always has the best ideas. How about serving up hand print turkey plates that can easily be decorated with edibles, pasta and seeds.
