If you haven’t already started planning your Thanksgiving dinner, it is time! Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and as a mom one of the biggest concerns I have is the kids’ table. Not only do you want to make it festive and fun, but it is also important to keep the kiddos occupied. This Thanksgiving I have found some great ideas for the kids’ table will make you wish you could sit with them! From being able to color on the table to opening a surprise turkey leg full of candy, these activities are sure to keep the kids entertained the whole night. These fun activities and decor are easy to make, and you may even be able to recruit some of the kids to help you out. Having fun Thanksgiving activities at the kids’ table will take the stress off of you and the other parents attending.
