Top Ten Thanksgiving Table Decoration Crafts


We've already celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving this year, but I'm already looking for ideas for next year and thinking of all of our American readers who still have Thanksgiving yet to come and may be looking for cute table decorations that the kids can create.  As Thanksgiving is all about family and being together, it really is nice to have the children make some of the table decorations and we've found some fantastic ideas.

We'll start with the centrepieces for your table, they've made these cute round Thanksgiving centrepieces (that could also be a wreath) over on Kids Activities Blog that would look fantastic along with any of the cute options of Thanksgiving centrepiece decorations over on Teach Preschool.

Next we've got place mats, last year we made our own Thanksgiving place mats with all sorts of lovely leaves and decorations.

You could also have your kids make a table runner, like the sweet leaf print table runner on Hand Made Kids Art.  We've also found a lovely child made Thanksgiving table runner that's bright and colourful on Dirt and Boogers.

This year we made some Thanksgiving place cards with all of our names ready to be displayed on the dinner table.  Great for creativity as well as name writing practise.

I found a few different napkin ring ideas that I absolutely love, there are these beaded napkin rings from Buggy and Buddy that look great and would be a perfect fine motor activity for kids.  Then there's these Thanksgiving turkey silverware napkin rings from Sugar Aunts that are just adorable!  And I'm also loving these Fall napkin rings from Happy Hooligans that are just painted in the most unique way and look really nice.

Then if you've got space on a wall behind your table, I can't think of anything better than this tree of thanks from Mama Papa Bubba to be proudly displayed for all to see.
