Looking for a quick way to add some Thanksgiving charm? These simple cupcake liner turkeys are easy to make and they only take a moment, so that your kids table can go from bland to beautiful without you taking too much time away from holiday prep.
Let your kids be part of the decorating process by covering their table with brown paper and putting out cups with crayons. They can write down their messages of gratitude and good wishes, or draw their favorite Thanksgiving images.
Decorate the table with a giant play turkey made from brown paper bags, so that the kids can have just as much delicious excitement at their table as the adults. Make side dishes and all sorts of other play meal details out of foam or paper.
Mix and match fall colors for your tableware and linens to create a bright collage and pump up your autumn cheer. Stick with rich fall foliage colors to evoke some seasonal warmth, and add in pops of metallic to make your look unique.
Turn mason jars into turkey-shaped lanterns to light up the children’s table in a fun and whimsical way. Using simple craft paper, you can help your kids create a face and tail feathers for a few colorful birds. Then, just stick them to your mason jars and add electric tea lights.
Instead of using place cards for the kid’s table, grab a pack of straws and print out cute little Thanksgiving graphics for some fun personalization they can use. Not only will this make your event more festive and fun, it will help everyone keep track of their drinks.
If you’re looking for a cute, personalized tradition to add to your holiday festivities, have each child trace their hand on construction paper, then create a glittering turkey centerpiece from all of the cut out handprints. Kids will love the decoration, and you can cherish it for years to come.
