Thanksgiving at the Kids’ Table
With Thanksgiving just three weeks away, it’s time to start planning for Turkey Day! Check out our Thanksgiving tips for kids to get their little hands helping out with the family feast.
Thanksgiving is a perfect time for the kids to help cook — and they’ll learn how to handle a big menu. Have the kids help write a turkey feast game plan with these tips.
Make a kid-friendly Thanksgiving Menu
Create a kid-friendly menu and discuss who’s going to cook the various courses. Your 7-year-old may want to help with stuffing!
Plan Thanksgiving Games
Let the kids manage the Thanksgiving fun and games. Start with the classics — like a round of family charades.
Decorate the Kids’ Table
Make the kids’ table feel festive. Prepare paper name tags for each of the kids table place settings, with pine cones and fall leaves for the centerpiece.
Enjoy Turkey Day!
Teach your kids to be gracious hosts – ask questions and talk with aunts and uncles and other relatives (and don’t be shy!). Thanksgiving is a great time to connect with family.
