Making homemade Thanksgiving place cards was a yearly tradition when I was a kid. There are so many ways to make them and I always had a good time getting crafty. Not every child wants to make place cards totally from scratch, however. And that’s okay! All you have to do is download these sweet printable Thanksgiving place cards designed by children’s book illustrator and author, Melanie Hope Greenberg, pull out a bucket of colored pencils or crayons and you are on your way to placing crotchety Uncle Joe and chatty Aunt Cathy at separate ends of the holiday dinner table.
This is not the first year Melanie has designed diy place cards for kids to color. We have several designs from previous years that you can pick from so even if you are having a dinner for 20 people, we have you covered! As I’ve mentioned in the past, these blank cards can also be turned into gratitude note cards. Instead of filling in names on the cards, write down what you are thankful for and place them around the table for dinner time conversation.
