Thanksgiving is never complete without corn on the table. This year, make it a little more exciting by making a corn stalk out of chocolate.

You will need: 4″ x 4″ sheets of yellow tissue paper, 2″ x 3/4″ strips of green tissue paper, 6″ long pieces of floral wire, floral tape, Hershey Kisses

DIRECTIONS: Make the Cornstalk
Stack two Hershey kisses together to make the corncob. Wrap the kisses with a 4 inch square sheet of tissue paper. Wrap the floral tape around the tissue paper. Cut the ends of the green tissue paper strips into points to resemble the leaves on a cornstalk.

Add the leaves to the bottom of the tissue corn, along with a piece of wire, and continue to wrap the floral wire around. Continue to wrap the floral wire around until you have covered all the tissue paper. Do the same thing again to make two corncobs.

Take both of your corncobs and wrap the remaining wire together. Wrap the floral tape around the wire to connect the two corncobs. Add additional leaves down the stalk if you want.

DIRECTIONS: Make the Name Banner
Download and print out the nameplace banners. Wrap the ends of the banner around a paper straw or 1/4 inch pole. Slide the straw out of the wrapped up paper to create a nice little ringlet. Repeat on the other side of the banner.

Waiting for Thanksgiving dinner is always the hardest part of the day. Keep the kids entertained by writing stories with pictures on these Pictograph Placemats. Print the printables provided onto regular 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper. Give the kids the blank placemat and the Native American Pictograph card. The kids can use the pictographs on the card, or come up with their own pictures, to write out their wild west stories.

Sail into Thanksgiving with a kid’s table that’s ready to entertain. Set the stage for this exciting adventure with a ship full of veggies. With its white sail and boatload of vegetables, this Pilgrim Centerpiece is sure to please parents and kids alike.

If you’d like to add some teepees to your table, print and cut out the printables (download link below). Fold along the grey lines. Glue the tab to the other side of the teepee to stand it up. Scatter the little tents around your table centerpiece, or place one at each placesetting for your guests.

For the boat, print out both sides of the base and its sail (download link below). Tape the sides of the boat together. Prop it up and put in a regular size soup bowl. Fill bowl with vegetables. Use a wooden skewer and slide through the holes in the sail. Stick skewer into the vegetables to prop up the sail. You are then ready to set sail, captain!

Turn the kid’s table at your Thanksgiving feast into a special surprise. It can be boring waiting for all of the food to finish cooking. Keep your kids and younger guests busy with their own teepee tablecloth playhouse. Secure the tablecloth to the table if you’re nervous about it falling off. Or better yet, wait to put any breakable dishes on the top until playtime is over.

You will need: enough canvas to cover your table to the floor (this is a canvas drop cloth from the hardware store–washed and dried), fabric paint, sponge paint brush, iron, freezer paper, ruler and an exacto knife.

Using a ruler and an exacto knife, cut a zig zag line out of a sheet of freezer paper. Iron the freezer paper onto the bottom edge of the canvas tablecloth. Carefully sponge the paint onto the cutout area. Repeat along the entire bottom edge of the canvas using new freezer paper for each section if necessary. Let fabric paint dry and follow any additional instructions listed on the fabric paint bottle, if applicable. Cut a slit in the canvas to create an opening.
