Holiday Table Settings for Kids
Prepare a fun, activity-filled kids' table at this year's Thanksgiving celebration.
We all fondly recall holidays spent at the kids' table, joking with cousins and passing vegetables to the dog when no one was looking. To create special memories for the next generation, forgo the boring card table in favor of a fun, kid-friendly setup. In good weather, set the table outdoors (within your sight, of course), and offer plenty of treats and activities to keep boredom and squabbles at bay.
Giving tree: Have the kids write down what they're thankful for this year on stamped tags, then tie to the branches of fall foliage.
Sweet treats: Thanksgiving-themed chocolate turkeys and lollipops make winning favors for tots.
Fun for all: Fill gift bags with rubber stamps and pads, then lay parchment paper on the table so the kids can play.
Alfresco dining: Place a rug beneath the table to create the illusion of an outdoor room.
