If you want to go the extra mile for the kids in your family, there are lots of ways to decorate or customize the kids' table to make it a little more personal. Of course, the best kids' table decorations make the fun at the kids' table last a little longer than the time it takes for them to pick around their dinner plates.

Here are four Thanksgiving kids' table decorations that can turn into a little extra fun for all.

4 Thanksgiving Kids' Table Decorations That Turn Into Fun

Love this butcher paper tablecloth idea from Southern Living -- perfect for a kids' table. Other fun additions: the circle diagrams for plates, colored pencils, personalized name flags on the chairs, and the personalized "to-eat" lists. Switch this idea up by drawing on name cards for each place setting, making a "food favorites" checklist, or, for older kids, providing a place to write in what they're thankful for this year.
