This Thanksgiving, your kids can craft with purpose — knowing that their artwork will be a special part of the holiday feast. Pilgrim hats and Native American headdresses, fall leaves, pumpkins, and of course, turkeys can mark each diner’s special place at the table.
These fun place cards can also be used as napkin holders or grouped together for an eye-catching centerpiece. Moms and dads, start saving those tubes and encourage your kids to get busy.
