Inspiring Ideas to Engage Your Youngest Guests!

Thanksgiving is upon us! We know you do all you can to make each and every one of your friends and family members feel welcome and appreciated in your home. To help you in your efforts, we’ve pulled together some fun ideas to keep your youngest guests happy and engaged on turkey day. This year, why not turn the kids table into the place to be with...

Crafts! Transform the kids table into an interactive crafting station! Replace your traditional tablecloth with butcher paper (it comes in festive holiday colors as well as white) and provide Thanksgiving stencils, scissors, crayons, markers, feathers, pipe cleaners, construction paper, and glue. Include a few completed projects as inspirational centerpieces and watch as your little gobblers get creative.

Activities! Place a clipboard or folder on each child’s chair packed with printouts of fun Thanksgiving word searches, crosswords, coloring pages, even scavenger hunt lists and watch as they race to complete their assignments!

Toys! Engineering sets like the Brackitz Inventor Set, with pieces large enough for multiple kids to collaborate and construct together, are the perfect building toy for girls and boys on Thanksgiving Day! With the 100 piece set, including sturdy planks and all types of connectors, all of your guests can get in on the building game, constructing everything from turkeys to Transformers—together!

Games! From the time-honored Candy Land and Monopoly to the irreverent Stinky Pig Game and the physical-fun Pancake Pile Up, there are plenty of multi-player games to keep your littlest guests giggling! Stack a pile next to their table – or designate a game room – and watch as they become engrossed in some good, old-fashioned, fun.

Brackitz engineering toys are the only construction toys that lets kids design any structure they can imagine - anything. Our unique, connect-anywhere Brackitz enables kids to create large scale, portable, 3-D structures – with no instructions or limitations – all while learning real-life math, science, engineering, and architecture skills.
