Kids' thanksgiving table

Thanksgiving means food, family, fun ... and perhaps a little fighting about who's going to have to sit at the kids' table. There's always a pouting teen who thinks she's too old, or a college kid for whom there's just not enough room at the adult table crammed into one of those little chairs.

This year, however, you can turn the tables by transforming the kids' table into a place everyone wants to sit.  With these cute and clever decorating ideas, the kids' table will have the most coveted seats in the house.

Here are 15 of the most creative ideas for your Thanksgiving kids' table. Warning: You may need extra little chairs!

    The brown, the orange, all the little details -- we love this entire setting from Paula Biggs for Frog Prince Paperie. The tree of thanks centerpiece, however, really pulls it all together, and captures the true meaning of the day. Kids write what they're thankful for on the leaves and place them on the tree before dinner is served, making gratitude truly the central focus of the meal. 

  • Coloring Placemats


    Let the kids help decorate the table with these great printable Thanksgiving placements. They go perfectly with the crayon turkeys too.
