We love Thanksgiving around here--not just a little but a LOT! The kids love to get involved any way they can, so what better way than to let them make the place settings for the Thanksgiving dinner?

Here's a simple and fun way to keep kids entertained while you're busy in the kitchen.

How We Did It

Pinecone Place Settings

First, gather up your supplies. We used pinecones the kids gathered up outside (another fun way to keep them busy). For the paper clips, we went with orange and yellow since those are nice fall colors--but any paper clip will do.

Then have the kids add some glue to the top of the pinecone, and stick a paper clip to the top.

Let the glue dry completely.

Meanwhile, have the kids trace their hands on some construction paper and cut out the design. Older kids can write the names of each guest--one on each hand print.

Then let them decorate the hands. They can make them into turkeys, add things they are thankful for, or simply color them however they want.

Then clip the paper to the paper clips. What a handy way to make place settings!
