It’s important for kids to remember that Thanksgiving isn’t all about the turkey, parades and football. Have your little ones write out what they’re thankful for and read it to everyone during the meal. You might be surprised (and touched) by their answers!

With all the delicious (and not always healthy) options on the Thanksgiving table, offer the kids a healthy fruit centerpiece that they’ll have fun eating! You can make simple mini cornucopias from ice cream cones filled with fruit.

When the kids arrive, have their table covered in kraft paper so they can decorate their space before Thanksgiving Dinner.

Make each child feel special with his or her own pilgrim hat place card made from an upside down paper cup and construction paper. Cut the bottom of the cup out to create an unique crayon holder!

Gather enough pine cones for each guest and let children create their very own turkey! Use construction paper or leaves for the feathers and add some googly eyes for a whimsical touch.
