Ah, the kids' table during the holidays. Martha Stewart has some cute ideas that will both decorate your table, and keep the kids amused. These turkey shaped place cards don't seem too beyond our grasp, and they've got turkey trivia on them- a fun idea for any age.
Here's another simple one. All you need is a pinecone, pipecleaner, a few feathers, and glue to make this little guy.
Felt finger puppets on top of candy sticks. They'll add some fun to the table, and give the kids something to play with. (Though I'm afraid a lot of kids will want that candy before they eat their meal if it's out there!) For the rest of the ideas and the instructions on how to make the crafts, click here.
