{INSPIRATION} Thanksgiving Kids Table

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends and FOOD.  As much as I enjoy making things look pretty with ribbons and bows, I have come to believe that this holiday, in particular is ALL ABOUT THE FOOD!  Of course, I will set my Thanksgiving table with some sort of flare and decor using a few glittery objects and ribbons, but my main objective is to make a delicious meal that my family will OOOH AND AHHH over.

HOWEVER....Kids don't always care about the food on Thanksgiving, so I came up with a fun and inexpensive kid table theme where they can happily color on the table, nibble on goldfish and sip punch from their decorated mason jars. 

Materials Needed:
1. brown paper {table cover}
2.  markers
3.  mason jars
4.  fall ribbon and embellishments {acorns, leaves, woodland animals, etc...}
4.  plastic utensils
5.  snack cups
6.  mini pumpkins
7. mini glue dots
8.  gems, colored stones, rice, pebbles, etc... {for the marker jar}

Tie a ribbon around the jar and use a glue dot for the acorn

Fill and jar, vase or glass cup with gems and stick the markers in the middle for a pop of color.
Tie another ribbon around the jar and use a glue dot for the acorn

Wrap the plastic utensils with theme matching fun ribbon

Use mini pumpkins, glittery acorns, and felt leaves for the "centerpiece"

Use a marker in a coordinating color to make a faux placemat and create a spot where kids can write down what they are thankful for.


P.S. This would be a great idea to offer up to your Thanksgiving hostess {if you are not hosting yourself}.  She might be very "THANKFUL" that you have come up with a way to entertain the kiddos while the adults enjoy all the glorious food. 

Simply Made by,
