If your Thanksgiving dinner plans involve children, you’ve got to see these kid-friendly Thanksgiving ideas by Rebekah, of A Blissful Nest. She knows the importance of exciting little guests by sitting at the kid’s table by providing colorful themed decorations, yummy treat favors, and fun activities for them to do right in their chairs. Bonus? When the kids are occupied and happy, the adults can actually enjoy their meals!

Using a Thanksgiving-themed printable décor package Rebekah designed especially with children in mind, she created a tabletop experience any child would love to be a part of. Rebekah began her brilliant kid-friendly table set-up by covering a child-sized table with brown butcher paper (but any colored paper would work). Can anything be more economical or child-friendly? No worries about spills on expensive linens! Hooray!

Once covered, Rebekah drew small frames where each child’s plate and the cup should go. Rebekah shares that many children love to match up shapes, which they can do easily at this table. Once the plates have been added, Rebekah suggests adding a piece of small fruit or a mini pumpkin with a customized printable name tag attached. Not only does this add color and festiveness to the plates, but it acts as a place card too. Kids love discovering their own names!

Rebekah chose paper cups for her kid-friendly place settings and also included brightly colored paper straws with themed straw flags, great idea. Paper cups with straws mean the likelihood of spills is considerably reduced. Centerpieces can make or break a table, and we love Rebekah’s choice.

Again, with kids in mind, Rebekah used a vintage, wood cheese box to display Mason jars full of color-coordinating crayons. Remember that butcher paper tablecloth? Yeah, it just became a giant canvas for coloring! How cool is that? Kids can remain occupied for at least minutes on end, adding their own artwork to the décor.

Next, Rebekah added decorations to the chairs to make them festive. This is an easy DIY with printables from Rebekah’s collection, a paper rosette, and ribbon. A final touch Rebekah included on her kid-friendly Thanksgiving table was little baskets filled with treats. She filled small candy tubes with chocolate balls and tiny berry baskets with yogurt-covered pretzels to satisfy restless kids who may need a little sugar bribe. We love the addition of the cute printable tag. What a sweet party favor, perfect for small hands. Add a few or all of these ideas and enjoy a peaceful celebration that everyone will enjoy this year!
