If you’re throwing a large Thanksgiving dinner this year, it makes sense to split up tables into separate kid and adult ones. These festive Thanksgiving table settings offer multiple ideas to make your little guests feel special. Plus there are lots of fun craft ideas in each one – many which involve kids making ahead of time or to partake in for endless fun over dinner.
