It’s that time of year again, time to start preparing for Thanksgiving.  Every year I have a “Friendsgiving” and create a fun table for the kids.  I wanted to show a quick and easy way to make a kids table setting in no time.  Most of the stuff I already had on hand.  I just needed to get some plates and make some placecard holders.  I thought this would be a fun project to get my boys involved in! They alway love helping out with projects like this.

I found these turkey placecard holders at Michael’s and they were 50% off. What a deal only $1.50 each!! So all we needed to do was pick out some paint colors.  For my project this month with DecoArt we had to use the Americana Premium Paints! I was really excited because I haven’t used them yet.

For my kids Thanksgiving table setting I really wanted bright and cheerful colors.

Let’s get started!


I gathered up all my supplies!

Easy Kids Thanksgiving Table

First we added our Americana Premium Vermillion Hue paint color.  We needed to add two coats of this, letting each coat dry 10 minutes.


Next add the Americana Premium Cobalt Teal Hue paint color.  We wanted to leave a little of the white showing in between the two colors.


Finally we added some of the Americana Premium Hansa Yellow Light to the back of the turkey.  That’s it! We really wanted to keep this place card holder simple.


I can’t wait to do more projects with these colors!


Now all you need to do is make a simple name card for each kid!



I’m seriously LOVING all these bright and fresh colors for the table.  Last year I did a coastal table setting for the adult table so this will be a perfect match!


One of my favorite things to add to any table setting is scrapbook paper.  It’s the perfect way to add a POP of color to any table setting for a inexpensive price!


Another great idea is adding some activities to the kids table setting.  While I was at Michaels’ they had some great Thanksgiving game sheets that I added to the table. Place a couple jars of crayons and your set!



We also painted a pumpkin to match the table setting.  We tried to make a pumpkin that matched the blue plaid but it was not a winner!  This will be a project we try again for sure to get it right.




My little guy had to color one of the hats to add in the pictures. He was very insistent one needed to be colored!


So as you can see this was a pretty fun and simple kids Thanksgiving table setting you can have done in no time! I really hated taking this down after I took the pictures, it was just so cute.

But it will be easy setup when the time comes for sure! Here’s some other great holiday table setting I’ve worked on as well!

Here’s some fun pictures we took at the Fall festival this past weekend!
