Thanksgiving Placemats and Conversation Cards

Today I’m sharing some Thanksgiving placemats and conversation cards. I love family traditions, particularly now that we have kids. The special and sometimes cheesy little things we do together is not only creating memories now, but connecting our past, present, and future families together. 

Our Thanksgiving Traditions

With that being said, one of my favorite childhood memories was making handmade placemats for each setting.

Making placemats to add to your Thanksgiving tablescape is a fun way to incorporate the kids into the process of putting on the big dinner.

Or, it can also be a good way to keep the little hands busy while the food is being prepped and served.

Printable Thanksgiving Conversation Cards

Conversation cards is another fun tradition that we have adopted from my husband’s side of the family.  We simply place a prompt card at each setting and after the meal is finished, we take turns answering the prompt.

This is a fun way to generate meaningful conversation, as well as, put everyone in a spirit of thanksgiving.
