Setting the Kids Table for Thanksgiving

Setting the Kids Table for Thanksgiving

When I was a kid, sitting at the kids table was like a death sentence! It was mostly because I was the only teenager amongst a table filled with my little brother and our cousins who are at least 8 years younger than I am.  That feeling never has to happen again. My goal was to create a kids table even the adults would want to sit at.

With the help of Baby Bear’s friends we husked, peeled, mashed and arranged our way to our perfectly set table giggling all along the way.  You too can make the kids table a fun place to be with tons of activities to keep the pop!TOTs happy and busy.

Check out the details below!

Kids Thanksgiving Table - The GirlsWrangling these girls was  challenging! They were so excited about everything they had accomplished and were literally jumping for joy.

Thanksgiving Mini Turky - Cornish HenWe cooked a Cornish Hen to look like a tiny turkey. One Cornish Hen will feed four little ones.
They loved picking at the fruit it was garnished with.

Thanksgiving Hot ChocolateThe pop!TOTs loved these hot chocolates with chocolate shavings.
