Jump to recipe!

It’s time to gather around the table and be thankful for all the blessing we have. Why not celebrate with the kids too? This fun Thanksgiving Kiddie Table is easy to create and the kids will love helping you too!

Create this fun space for the kids to enjoy their Thanksgiving Dinner! With just a few simple supplies, the kids will LOVE helping you make this Thanksgiving Kiddie Table complete with a Pilgrim Hat Crayon Holder, Mayflower Drinking Straws and Turkey Place Holders!

I remember at family dinners when all the kids would sit at a special table, they would laugh, have fun (and sometimes get into trouble) and simply enjoy the holiday. This Thanksgiving Kids Table is sure to bring joy and laughter!

First I lined the table with craft paper, making it easy for the children to draw or write what they are thankful for. All of the crafts on the table are easy and kid friendly. I used X-ACTO products for the cutting, be cautious when using them around children.

Let’s gather our supplies and get started…

Pilgrim Hat Supplies

Pilgrim Hat Crayon Cup Supplies

Tools I used…


  1. Cut out a circle a little larger than the bottom of the cup from the black paper
  2. Cut the bottom out of the cup with the X-ACTO knife
  3. Cut a 1 inch strip of brown paper for the belt, if it doesn’t lay flat, you can curve the edges
  4. Cut a 1 1/2 inch square of gold for the buckle and a 1 inch square of brown for the inside of the buckle
  5. Using the tape runner or glue, attach the belt and buckle to the cup, attach the bottom
  6. Fill with crayons

  3. Fold each feather in half, lengthwise, and ruffle the slits a bit to give the feather some depth
  4. Cut waddle and beak from foam using small scissors
  5. Glue on eyes, waddle and beak using hot glue gun or other glue
