A Fun DIY Thanksgiving Placemat for Your Little One!

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving nearly a week away. While I am carefully planning our Thanksgiving menu, I’m letting my little one’s get in on the Thanksgiving fun with some decor for their kids’ table. My girls love to paint and I am planning a fun and interactive kids table for them on Thanksgiving Day (I’ll share more next week) so I wanted them to help me personalize their table with some fun placemats.

These were not only fun for them to make (and get their hands dirty) but they will also double as a coloring mat for them during Thanksgiving dinner. 

Creative Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving as a Family

Thanksgiving is one of those quick holidays that comes and goes too fast. I get caught up in the menu and sometimes miss the entire point of the holiday. With three little ones in the picture now, I want to make sure that Thanksgiving is a meaningful holiday for our family. I want to make sure that we practice gratitude and give thanks, and not just stuff ourselves full of turkey.

If you’re looking for some creative ways to celebrate Thanksgiving as a family, here are some great ideas…

DIY Discovery Bottles for Baby

As a mama to three little ones, I am constantly thinking of fun things to do with my kids. I’ve got a 4-year-old, a 2-year-old, and a 7-month-old, so it can be difficult to find activities or projects that are appropriate for all three of them.

We just got our hands on a new book that is sure to keep the winter boredom away, and found the perfect activity for all of my girls to enjoy – Discovery Bottles! My older girls made these discovery bottles using some odds and ends from our craft supplies and the baby had so much fun playing with them when they were finished!

Winnie the Pooh First Birthday Party Ideas

Macks is nine months next week, which means that he’s only three months away from his first birthday. I’m slowly starting to plan for his first birthday party. I love planning birthday parties for my children, because it’s a chance for me to get out some of my creative energy and plan something that they will always remember.

A first birthday party is something that is so special for both you and your little one. It’s a celebration that you and baby made it through the first year together.

Winnie the Pooh has always been a favorite of mine. I was read Winnie the Pooh books as a child, and now I read them to my children. If your little one loves Winnie the Pooh as much as we do, throw a first birthday party in the Hundred Acre Wood!
