The table features a cloth runner, but paper placemats are used to boost color and protect the table. This is a practical solution for those who want the decorations to be holiday special, but recognize the reality of potential kid messiness.

Thanksgiving Dessert Idea for Kids

The table is set with paper plates, but gooey desserts are wisely served in glassware. Each little guest finds a name tag to welcome them to their place. These are not identical, but they are coordinated in autumn colors.

DIY Thanksgiving Craft Ideas

A plastic cup holds crayons for marking the menu choice card. It has easily been made party ready with google eyes and a paper beak and wattle. Perhaps you might want to provide Thanksgiving coloring sheets, too, to keep sated young guests contentedly sitting while you linger over coffee.
