We hosted a Friendsgiving the other day. I freaked out a little since we all have small kids and I wanted the kids to have as much fun as the adults.
Essentials for the Perfect Kidsgiving:
We put up this advent calendar tree at the beginning of November so Olivia could count down the day to Thanksgiving. She doesn’t get that the day is coming but she does love to move the stuffy we use in the calendar.
Next, I found this paper table cloth. I decided to use double-sided tape to keep it in place. It is made of crepe paper so I recommend taping it to a piece of butcher paper to give it a little structure and strength. The tablecloth came with crayons that I popped into a copper mug for a little decoration and to keep them all in one place. For a centerpiece, I went with a faux pumpkin succulent. Every kid picked it up and threw it on the floor so it was a good call. I added these light-up leaves for a little pop.
Olivia woke up from a nap and ran straight to the table!
We went easy on the Kidsgiving menu. Shredded turkey, mashed potatoes, veggies, and creamed spinach with some mac and cheese. I found these plates by EZPZ. They suction to the table! I was happily surprised that each plate stayed on the table and not on the floor. The mini weighted cups were perfect for tiny hands to hold. All of us parents were had so much fun watching the kids have fun and we were still able to enjoy our own meals.
For a treat, I popped this Yowie treat at each child’s spot. One of my favorite things is when a little one brings a toy over and asks for information. These chocolates come with a collectible puzzle piece, animal toy and a little slip of paper about the animal. Each kid was thrilled to learn about their animal. Olivia carried her brown bear around all day.
This was an easy and very doable Kidsgiving table that I hope will inspire you this Thanksgiving.
