Give Thanks Bookmarks To Color For Thanksgiving
These bookmarks are the perfect gratitude craft for kids to decorate while sitting at the kids’ table on Thanksgiving or just for fun the entire month of November. A great idea for school classrooms, too. Kids (and adults) will love getting creative by coloring the bookmarks and then using as a placemark in their favorite book.
And about that kids’ table…
History of the Kids’ Table
The kids’ table is not at all a new concept. In fact it has become a tradition in most families with some humor in who is sitting at the smaller table and when promotion to the big table takes place. I envision this well known tradition to have begun back in pioneer or Little House on the Prairie days when all the kids wouldn’t fit around the main table. So a separate table had to suffice.
In our family (since I only have one brother) there has always been room for a few children at the main table. These spots are typically reserved for the older children in the family. So it’s a big day when a kid becomes a teen because that means, if there’s room at the main Thanksgiving table, they can start sitting at the adult table.

Holiday Kids’ Table
The kids’ table for Thanksgiving, or any holiday, doesn’t have to be boring at all. It can be decorated to fit a theme, but also have items that can help to keep kids entertained. Often these holiday kids’ tables have some sort of activities or coloring placemats so kids can have fun at their table.
