Bring the colors of Thanksgiving into your house with these easy kid's table decorating ideas. With just a few Fiskars tools and some basic supplies, you and your kids can make these no-sew place mats, glitter pumpkins and rustic burlap name cards in no time at all.

Thanksgiving always brings families together for a big meal and many times there isn't room for everybody at one table. This year, start new traditions with some décor around the kids table that is designed just for them. They will feel special that they have a place of their own. Plus they will have an activity to keep them busy in case they finish their meal early.

5. To make quick placemats, cut felt into large rectangles using The Original Orange-Handled Scissors™. These scissors have stainless-steel blades that offer a sharp edge and can cut multiple layers of felt beautifully. Also, by using felt for your placemats, you do not need to sew the edges.

7. Attach the ribbon onto the front of the felt placemats using a strong fabric adhesive. It's so easy to create simple embellishments that look professional.

Kids Activities:

1. Have kids mount Thanksgiving Sentiment stamps onto the Stamp Press. The grid lines on the stamp press help make sure that the stamps are mounted correctly. Ink and stamp onto cardstock to create "I am so Thankful" pages.

2. To keep kids engaged during your thanksgiving festivities, have the kids write down what they are thankful for. This is a great way to keep the kids entertained, while the adults enjoy their meal.

3. The younger kids can color onto yellow and orange construction papers with crayons. The coloring does not need to be perfect; you just need them to add random color spots.

4. Using the Family Tree Intricate punch, punch out tree shapes from these colored pages for the kids. The intricate punches create the most detailed and beautiful patterns that will excite the kids. Adhere these punched shapesonto a burlap canvas or a notecard for the kids to take home as gifts.
