Fun Ideas for the Thanksgiving Kids Table

Thanksgiving Table set with food with family surrounding the table | Ogden, UT

There’s an awful lot to think about when you’re hosting Thanksgiving, including how you will keep the little ones happy and occupied while the adults are feasting and conversing. Use these fun ideas for how to decorate and prepare a Thanksgiving children’s table so that your youngest dinner guests have a great time this holiday.

Coloring Pages

 Nothing passes the time while waiting on desert like a little festive coloring. Print out some Thanksgiving-themed coloring pages for your kiddos ahead of time, and fill a few jars with different colored crayons that you can leave at the table. You can even take the creative space one step further by covering the kids table with a paper table cloth, inviting kids to draw and color right on the table.

Crafts that Inspire Gratitude

Set out an “I am thankful for…” book and invite kids to draw pictures or write sentences about what makes them feel gratitude. Alternatively, you can cut out leaf shapes from construction paper ahead of time, and invite the kids to write what they’re thankful for on each of the leaves. When finished, you can hang the leaves up with string creating a nice, homemade Thanksgiving decoration.

“Give Thanks” Centerpiece

As you’re picking out festive dinnerware and placemats for the kids table, remember to make an equally festive centerpiece. This is an easy do-it-yourself option and you can even invite the kids to help you make the “Give Thanks” centerpiece.

Your Car’s Inspiring List of New Year’s Resolutions

2018 Ford Explorer

The New Year is all about making a fresh start and getting back in touch with what really matters most. As your family’s well-loved Ford vehicle, I have a few New Year’s resolutions of my own. Just like you, I can’t wait to spend more time with the whole family this year, embarking on brand new adventures and having an absolute blast.

Spend more time with family

This year, I’m resolving to spend more time with the whole family. Luckily, Ford makes doing so better than ever, with vehicles like the Ford Explorer and the Ford Edge. It’ll be no problem at all planning plenty of quality time with the family throughout the New Year.

Take on new adventures

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut. That’s what I’m resolving to take on new adventures in the New Year. Ford offers an adventure-ready SUV for every lifestyle, so I’ll have you covered whether you’re taking on a cross-country road trip or simply getting away from it all for a weekend.

Have more fun

Finally, I’ll have more fun in the New Year. Everyday driving can become dull, the morning commute can be a chore, but Ford’s lineup turns every outing into a memorable excursion.

Of course, to get me into top shape for the upcoming year, you may want to bring me in for an inspection at Westland Ford.
