Are you thinking about the stress of hosting Thanksgiving Dinner this year? Do you need crafts and treats for the kid’s table? We have gathered a few ideas from around the web that will make you the best host. Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner can be stressful. Keeping the children occupied while dinner is being prepared is so important. Kids aren’t interested in adult conversation or helping you fix dinner. At least not for very long, they want to have fun. So, the solution is to serve fun crafts and treats.
Next, choose a few ideas from our list of creative crafts and tasty treats. They are perfect for a Kid’s Thanksgiving Table:
Chocolate Chip Turkeys – They look almost too good to eat, but I guarantee the kids will devour them.
Milk in Mini Milk Glasses – Simple, but a pretty addition to a kid’s table.
Pilgrim Hats – Chocolate and more chocolate. I want these at the adult table too. They’re perfect for thanking guests as they are leaving.
Turkey Hand Prints Table Cloth – We were unable to find the link to the original post. However, we think you can get a good idea of how it was created from the picture. So, get creative and create your own version.
Paper Fan Turkeys – This is an easy project for the kids to make while you’re busy preparing dinner. As a result, have another adult or teen assist them.
Handprints Pumpkin – I love this idea, and I especially love white pumpkins. This is a perfect craft to capture memories of those little hands while waiting for dinner.
Pilgrim Hat Crayon Holder – Children love to color. Makes these adorable pilgrim hat crayon holders to house their favorite crayons. Print lots of pages for them to color while dinner is being prepared.
