Setting the Kids Table for Thanksgiving
When I was a kid, sitting at the kids table was like a death sentence! It was mostly because I was the only teenager amongst a table filled with my little brother and our cousins who are at least 8 years younger than I am. That feeling never has to happen again. My goal was to create a kids table even the adults would want to sit at.
With the help of Baby Bear’s friends we husked, peeled, mashed and arranged our way to our perfectly set table giggling all along the way. You too can make the kids table a fun place to be with tons of activities to keep the pop!TOTs happy and busy.
Check out the details below!
Wrangling these girls was challenging! They were so excited about everything they had accomplished and were literally jumping for joy.
We cooked a Cornish Hen to look like a tiny turkey. One Cornish Hen will feed four little ones.
They loved picking at the fruit it was garnished with.
The pop!TOTs loved these hot chocolates with chocolate shavings.
Ahaana and Liana husked the corn.
Peeling potatoes is not easy, but it made them appreciate the process and felt accomplished once they completed the task.

The girls surround the sink to mash the potatoes. The pot is in the sink because it was hot.
Liana mashes the potatoes and Brookie photo bombs her! lol
The girls partnered up and created flower arrangements for their table. We cut and gutted squash and used silk flowers for the centerpieces.
Liana was so proud! She’s looking like a mini Martha Stewart.
The table is set.
Brookie and Mehar’s arrangement. Can you believe? How beautiful!
