What about the kids?
Until now, I've shown you MY fall tablescapes. Today I'm going to share some links from other sites.
I just saved you a couple of hours searching online for ideas.
I don't want to give away my plan for this year but suffice it to say that our kids table is going to be as interesting as the adult table - and much more fun! It will be my focus this year.
Let's consider "kid boredom."
While we are finishing up the mashed potatoes and whipping out the gravy lumps, the kids are thinking, "I'm going to starve to death!" I suppose the big kids (our DHs) are probably thinking the same thing.
If you give them some appetizers and games all their own, you will not only make them happy, but give you a bit of peace while you finish up dinner prep.
It's OK to play with your food on

Great idea roundup! Giving the kids things to keep them having good quiet fun? Yes, please! (Stopping by from the SHINE Blog Hop.)
Aubrey, thanks for coming by. I’m really looking forward to putting together the kids’ table this year for my grandsons.
I haven't filled out a mad lib in years. Thanks for all the Thanksgiving ideas. Thanks for sharing and linking up to Scraptastic Saturdays. This post will be shared via FB, Twitter and Pinterest. Have a wonderful week.
