Give Thanks Playdate (46 photos)
"A colorful and friendly Thanksgiving get together design especially for kids packed with hands on activities and crafts."
Amanda from Amanda's Parties to Go designed a super fun FREE Thanksgiving printable packed with colorful, vibrant designs that also includes kid friendly activities that will keep the kids busy and entertained for hours.
The printable includes lots of goodies to help you decorate the kid’s table not just for thanksgiving but for any fall festivities.
For our Give Thanks play date, I set up the kids table outdoors since the weather here in Phoenix is very mild during Fall. I purchased a few pumpkins to use as center pieces and embellished them using silk flowers, ribbons and painted polkadots. Using the coordinated paper and turkey icons from the set, I made cute crayon holders using TP roll that was placed beside each place setting along with an activity sheet from the printable set. I also used the coordinated paper as placemats, the larger turkey icons from the set were used to decorated the back of their chairs.
The dessert table was as colorful and fun as the kids table. Using fabric that coordinated with the printable, I created the backdrop by covering a piece of foam board and added the Happy Thanksgiving banner. An orange polkadot fabric was used as a tablecloth. The kids enjoyed some yummy cake pops, sugar cookies, trail mix, cupcakes and turkey sandwiches.
At the craft station, kids made turkey hats using the coordinated paper from the printable, painted wooden indian masks, made cute turkey decorations and colored the turkey printable also from the set.
Favors were displayed on an old kid's fence decorated with color coordinated paper bunting.
The kids had so much fun. If you have good weather in late fall, staging this party outdoors might be a fun way to do a kids’ table at your Thanksgiving dinner.
