Thanksgiving Activities and Ideas for the Best Ever Kids' Table

Remember the kids’ table at Thanksgiving and memories made just joking, laughing, and playing with cousins?

My grandma always placed the adults around the main dining room table, and she would set up a round card table for all the kids. Usually, it was just my cousins, my siblings, and I. I remember laughing a lot. I also remember listening in on some of the adult conversations, even from our corner of the room. And the food? Well, the food was amazing, including pies baked by my uncle and aunt, turkey, stuffing, and all the fixin’s.

Thinking back gave me an idea. At our family gatherings nowadays, everyone usually finds a way to sit together, either scrunched around the table or spread out throughout the house. What better way to bring kids back to the table than a few festive activities just for Thanksgiving?

It’s time to make new memories and have a good time making them. Ready for a li’l Thanksgiving fun? Who says the young at heart can’t join in the fun? Let’s go!
