What can you have your grandchildren do that will help you out and keep them busy (and happy) until it’s time to eat?
Why– have them make place cards!
Here are links to some that you can print out ahead of time.
Then when your grandchildren arrive, simply have them cut out the place cards, write family members’ names on the cards, and place the cards around the table. That’s doable, isn’t it? That’s what I thought.
- HGTV has some rather elegant looking ones. (I think these are my favorite.)
- Here’s a Pilgrim hat place card. (My second favorite.)
- Nice ones (the turkey is cute) and some that would have lots of kid appeal (using a teddy bear).
Using Thanksgiving style place cards adds to the theme of your table setting and decoration. Makes your table look festive. And keeps grandchildren busy.
That’s a winning combination if you ask me . . .
