Children bring a special brightness to the holiday and if you’re hosting kiddos at your feast this Thanksgiving, you’re in for a treat. The “kids table” is a long-standing tradition in many homes and it’s easier than ever to make it extra special — and fun — for the young ones. If they’re engaged, adults can linger in adult company. It’s a win-win! Today I’m sharing ten easy ways to make your kids’ table fun, entertaining and the highlight of the day.
Let them get creative.
The grown-ups can relax a bit while the children show off some (relatively) quiet creativity. This can mean coloring activities, decorating the tablecloth, and sculpting with play-doh. Or provide supplies for them to journal their own gratitude.
Also, offer a game or silly group activity.
If you don’t mind a little noise, let them find their silly side with jokes or games at the table. Their giggles will make sweet background music for your guests.
All of these ideas are inexpensive and simple! And don’t be surprised if a few adults end up at your kids’ table. Enjoy!
