Our Thanksgiving table is the heart of our holiday celebration. It is the place where we all gather together to enjoy the food that everyone has prepared to share. Our best dinnerware is on the table, festive linens, harvest centerpieces, shiny flatware and bountiful serving pieces filled with yummy food fill the table. And desserts are waiting in the wings to be served!
A Thanksgiving table can seem very daunting to children (unless, of course, they’re at a festive children's table). Everything seems extra fragile. There are more people at the table than they are used to. And the food seems endless and extra special.
Why not bring a little whimsy and fun to the table by having the kids craft simple Thanksgiving place cards for the table? It will keep the kids busy "helping" while you are occupied in the kitchen with dinner. And it will make the table even more welcoming and homey.
Some simple place card ideas include:
1. Have your little ones trace their hands and then add legs at the bottom and color them to look like turkeys.
2. Decorate folded cards with leaves or berries.
3. Decorate folded cards with designs in fall colors.
4. Group together a bunch of colorful leaves with a piece of cardboard or construction paper on the top to add your guest's name.
