I love Thanksgiving dinner. I mean, I really love it. I think about it all year long. I wanted to share my kids table that encourages thankfulness. Lucky for me, I married a man who shares this love of turkey, stuffing and gravy. Now that we have kids, we try to share our love of Thanksgiving with them. We get them involved in preparing the meal and setting the table.
This year, I have decided to make our Thanksgiving kids table more fun! My kids always finish eating before my husband and I do. When we are at a restaurant, we pull out some toys or coloring from our “bag of fun,” so my husband and I can enjoy our meals at a more leisurely pace. I decided to use this idea at home.
I started with these cute coloring placemats from Target. It will be fun to see what the kids are thankful for this year, even if it is My Little Pony and stuffed animals!
It would be easy to make your own as well. Here is a cute free printable from Martha Stewart:
For the centerpiece, I found these foam trees.
I cut one from the top, and the other from the bottom, and fit them together so they could stand up. My kids then decorated them with leaf stickers.
Let’s not forget these adorable turkey headbands!
You can find the free printable here, at Handmade Charlotte.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving with happy family and happy, entertained kids!
