Craft and activity for the Thanksgiving kids table

This craft is double the fun! First you get to have fun making this Thanksgiving kids table craft and then your children will have fun using it! I will also show you how to decorate a simple table for kids using supplies from our sponsor Papermart:

Cardstock (best if one side is printed)
Washi Tape:
Baker’s Twine:
Shipping Tags:
Brown Kraft Paper:
Square Doilies:

1. Cover a table with brown kraft paper and add doilies as place mats.
2. Fold a piece of cardstock both ways. Unfold.
2. Cut a slit on the horizontal crease on the right side up to the center crease. Fold the top right corner down about 1″ from the center crease. Fold the bottom right corner in to the center crease. Fold the bottom left panel behind the right and fold the remaining triangle over.
3. Fold the top left panel over the top right and fold the bottom panel up. Secure the edges with washi tape.

Place shipping tags and paper in the back pocket and crayons, markers or pens in the front. Add baker’s twine to a shipping tag and place that in the back pocket. Happy thanksgiving and happy crafting!

    Thank you for this tutorial. These pockets are brilliant! I made 20, tucked a napkin in the back pocket, utensils in the front pocket. They added a special touch to our casual Thanksgiving dinnerware.

    I made these for my nieces. They loved them and carried them around all afternoon on Thursday – – –

  5. I love this idea so much I made it right away. I used 12×12 paper and its great. I do like the idea of using rectangular paper more so ill cut another piece down for my next one. Such a nice travel pack even for me. 🙂 I'll be making myself lots- thanks!

    This is such a Fabulous Idea!!! I think I'm going to make this for my daughters class for valentines day. I hate giving candies in goodie bags so I'm always searching for other ideas and this is so perfect. Just so you know. I think I've watched ALL of your videos! More than once, that's for sure!! Thank you so much for sharing all of your knowledge with us amateurs! You're an inspiration to all of us in my opinion. As always, thanks so much:). Hugs, Joyce

  9. Great ideas, as always!   Love your videos!   And thanks for sharing Papermart with us!  Oh my goodness, what a wonderful place to shop!  I just told my husband NOT to buy me anything for my birthday because I'm going shopping at PAPERMART!  And it's going to be fun!!!  He just said, "Oh, great", and told me to get off the computer!  haha, no way!  Thanks, girl!
