Kids Thanksgiving Table

Good morning!  My girls get excited about decorating the Thanksgiving table every year.  Most years we only have one table but we are having lots of guests this year so we decided to do a kids table.  The girls both love Pinterest and have been finding lots of cute ideas.  I am not linking to the pins but here is the list., Melissa Davies, Peurta Bella, Angie Juda, and Lisa Brown.

Mr. Turkey is made using the Gift Bow die from the Holiday Mini catalog.  He is glued onto a little 4 oz. cup and holds candy corn.
Love this idea, a Pilgrim's hat filled with crayons to keep them busy as the meal is served.  I have some coloring pages copied but their table will also be covered with white paper so they can scribble on it as well.

This is Sadie's favorite part, making place cards.  She also makes everybody sit in their assigned seat, no changing seats!

This is something we have done for  several years now.  Since we have a rule that nobody is allowed to pass through the kitchen and taste test, these snacks keep them from "starving".

We always list what we are thankful for and I save the lists and read some of the ones from recent years  back as everyone is filling in the new ones.  We get some really funny ones sometimes, a couple years ago someone listed gravy and Dalton listed Toy Story, Woody, and Buzz last year. 
And last is the plasticware holder, yes I use plastic utensils for the kids but the adults get real ones.  Thanks for stopping by!
