Hosting a multigenerational thanksgiving
Consider having a separate table for the kids, especially if your tables are small or you plan on using your find china. If that doesn't work for you you can make one end grown ups and the other end children. For the kids use unbreakable plates and cups. You can line the table with paper to catch any spills. To keep kids busy have them present a thanksgiving show at the end of the meal. It will be a memory that everyone will remember.
