If you don't already have one, first pick the perfect pint-sized table to entertain your little ones this Thanksgiving. This Guidecraft Color Nordic Kids Table and Chair Set is a great choice because of its smooth ouch-free edges and convenient stools that can be stacked or stashed under the table when you're not using all four chairs ( It's made of natural bent wood and the color-topped stools add the perfect pop of fall color.

Consider splurging on a personalized keepsake that you can use each year, like these Thanksgiving plates with your child's name on them (Pottery Barn Kids). These sweet little 10-inch dinner plates are BPA-free and feature adorable owls and a meaningful message that lets your little one know just how special you think they are.

Keep the kids entertained while you wait for dinner with this cool pop-stick craft kit (The Land of Nod). They can create seven pop-stick projects with one kit — from a colorful peacock to silly little cow puppets. It includes pop sticks, stickers, shapes, a glue stick and simple instructions to foster creativity while keeping the kids content. You can even start a new family tradition by sending the craft each child makes home with their parents, tied with string and ready to be hung as a homemade ornament for Christmas.

This adorable ship centerpiece, inspired by the Mayflower, is the perfect table-topper for kids. You can fill it with festive fall decor like leaves and pinecones, craft materials or even dinner rolls. This ship makes a serious statement with three large canvas sails and stands nearly 2-feet high (Pottery Barn Kids).

Everything in its place

It's a wrap!

paper table wrap

These modern placemats are a great addition to any Thanksgiving table. On one side, the mats have markers for a plate, utensils and a little cup, so your kids can practice place-setting. On the flip side, kids can write in what they did that day and even draw a photo describing their Thanksgiving adventures (Name Your Design).

Before you set your final table, cover it with Kraft wrapping paper (Paper Mart). The brown paper tone is on-theme with Thanksgiving, it saves your table top from run-on crayons and it can double as a craft project since the kids can trace their handprints, color their names and even paint across the top of it... without sacrificing your table.
