Reinventing the Thanksgiving Kids’ Table

Happy Wednesday! You’re officially half way through the work week!

Spicing up those creative minds this morning with this super cute & thrifty idea {we know we’re a day early for Thrifty Thursday, but this just couldn’t wait!} – perfect for your kids’ table{s} at your Thanksgiving feast {Which, PS – can you believe it’s already next week?!}

This kid-friendly table covering is creative & practical yet trendy & chic!

What you need:

1. A dining table to be designated as the “kid’s table”

2. Kraft Paper {You can find kraft paper via amazon.com for $8.21 per 65-foot roll}.

3. Crayons or Washable Markers {display in a cute bucket or have a mini box at each place-setting}.

4. DIY Name Card Displays. BHW idea we love: Create a cute name card to attach to each individual box of crayons or markers & leave that on top of each plate to mark each child’s seat. They’ll feel special with their own box of crayons & even more special that their name marks their seat! {If you like the stamp name settings as seen in the photo, you can visit stampinup.com to purchase card stock {$11.06} & alphabet stamps {$22.17}.

Cheers to making your Thanksgiving kid’s table{s} practical yet trendy, cute AND inexpensive, and thank you to Country Living for the wonderful inspiration today! ❤

Remember, this idea can be used for many events other than Thanksgiving. Great for weddings that aim to be kid-friendly too! Especially if your theme is country, rustic, vintage, etc.! Or create for your next family get together, BBQ, birthday party, & more! ❤

The Better Half Girls {in full holiday mode!}
