The Pottery Barn Kid’s Table always gets me. So damn cute. Clearly I’m not going to dump a grand on trying to duplicate this masterpiece. But, I so admire the crap out of it. Haha.
This year we will be hosting our family for Thanksgiving dinner. When I say, “we are hosting”, what I really mean is, my mom will pretty much do everything. Just at my house. She will come over bright and early in the morning with the bird all ready for the oven. I just might possibly stick the bird in the oven and set the timer. That’s kind of it.
So, when I say “I’m hosting” it’s a joke. I’ve never even roasted a turkey in my life. It’s so intimidating. Everyone sits around Thanksgiving day anticipating the turkey feast. If it sucks, then you basically suck and ruined Thanksgiving. I’ll leave that to my mom 🙂
My Thanksgiving role is setting pretty tables and baking a couple of pies.
As I walked though Target the other day, I came across cute Thanksgiving paper goods. I thought it would make the most adorable kids table.
Super cute, right? And all three of these items cost me a whoppin $9. I’m normally not cool with paper on good ol’ turkey day, but quickly realized, the kids could care less….so, they get paper, we get the china:) And it was too cute to pass up.
I used this free printable “I am thankful for….” from Ella Claire Inspired. Aren’t they perfect? I love seeing what the kids write each year. Last year Bailey wrote, “soda” and “my rabbit.” LOL.
I am thankful for….. placement printable.
She also created these adorable coloring sheet you can find here.
This is another cute “This Turkey” table activity you can find here.
How about this Turkey Paper Doll kit? Haha – I love it. Click here to download and print.

The TomKat Studio created these beautiful free printable Thanksgiving collection you can find here. Everything included. The Banner + Invitation + food tags + toppers + menu. Isn’t it great? And FREE!!
I’m a sucker for mason jar anything. They make adorable drink containers for the kids table too. You just need some old canning jars….these are jelly jars. Mason jar lids, that I found here at JoAnn’s. And paper straws, which can be found almost anywhere these days. JoAnn’s also has a great variety which you can see here. Don’t forget your JoAnn’s coupons. I never step foot in that place without them in hand. Basically, everything is on sale at all time. Check it out for yourself here.
Bailey was in charge of name place settings. I love what she and her creative imagination came up with. The finishing touch to the kid table. She was so proud of herself too.
Cory followed this tutorial found here to create the mason jar crayon holder. I works great for the kid table centerpiece.
I hope this inspired you to set a cute, festive, inexpensive kid table this Turkey Day. Anything to keep the kids busy and happy is worth it, if you ask me. More time for the adults to guzzle wine + pig out on the delicious spread of food + chat with your favorite peeps. Cheers!
