As much as we would love to think Thanksgiving is a calm and relaxing holiday of food and friends, we still need to keep the kids entertain as we sit down and enjoy a big meal with our friends and family and give thanks for our lives. Kids are not as easily entertained with food and conversation so I thought I would share some Kid Friendly Thanksgiving Table ideas and crafts that are inexpensive and easy to make. You still have plenty of time to head to the craft store to pick up a few things and create these fun Kid friendly tables and maybe you won’t hear much from them the rest of the night!!
First I am going to show you a great table idea for kids that you trust with Permanent markers. Using shelf liner, like this EasyLiner Smooth Top from Duck Brand you can make placemats that you can keep from year to year or dispose of after dinner.
Simply cut rectangles or squares out of the Shelf Liner, you can adjust to your individual table.
Then set each table with festive plates and napkins and a few sharpie markers and leave the rest up to your guests. They can draw, play tic-tac-toe or hangman. It is up to them. Told you this was easy.
Now here are some other fun kid friendly Thanksgiving table ideas from other bloggers.
