If we want our Thanksgiving spreads to inspire oohs and ahhs galore, the secret isn't just to slave over the food, but to get our kids to craft some creative table decor. Many of these masterpieces serve a dual purpose -- helping guests know where to sit and keeping antsy kids occupied. Some even double as dessert. No matter what, these table decorations will spark plenty of conversation and fun to make Thanksgiving dinner that much more memorable -- all thanks to some enterprising kids.
