What are some Thanksgiving treat ideas for kids?

Thanksgiving treats for kids can include a lot of things, depending on your needs! Try some of these:

  • Place Settings. Keep fights over who sits where from happening at the kid’s table this Thanksgiving with kid-friendly place settings!
  • Themed Treats. Have some kid-specific treats that are whimsical and fun to make them feel included and excited about food too!
  • Party Favors. Give kids something to take home as a special treat! There’s a lot of really cute options in this list too!

Tips for an awesome Kid’s Table at Thanksgiving:

  • Location. Make sure you can see and hear the kid’s table from the main table, without being able to see and hear TOO well! Let kids enjoy a little fun and freedom, but keep them close enough if they need help or a conflict needs resolved you can catch it early.
  • Activities. Adults are content to eat and talk, and kids are not usually so easily entertained. Use something like these free printable Thanksgiving place mat coloring sheets for kids to keep little hands busy.
  • Tableware. Keep in mind kids will be using the tableware, so you can use paper or plastic dishes to keep things from breaking. Exclude things like knives (even butter knives can be dangerous in the wrong hands), and DO include extra things like napkins for inevitable messes.
  • Tablecloth. Choose something that can get dirty – because it will!

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
