Do you want to keep the kids occupied at the Thanksgiving table this year? I have a mess-free craft that will do just that AND it will start a discussion about gratitude. Win, Win!! 

This adorable craft from Oriental Trading is a magnet photo frame that includes self adhesive foam leaves that they kids can write on.

The kids will love it! And it is the perfect opportunity to get them thinking about gratitude. Want to see how simple it is? Jolie will show you!

Cute right? Now before you go run over to Oriental Trading to get the Tree of Thanks Picture Frame Magnet Craft Kit take a quick second to check out my tablescape because they too came from Oriental Trading. I love the fact that the china is nice enough to use for a holiday meal but I can throw it out at the end of dinner making clean up a breeze and I totally plan on using the boxwood garland with my Christmas decorations!

But back to kid crafts, what do you do to keep the kids entertained at the dinner table? Here are a few more ideas!
