Once you have your placemats printable, its just a matter of placing them so that everyone can have some coloring fun.
If we have a kids table for Thanksgiving, I love using them as Thanksgiving placemats to color. If you do not have a kids table, I love either moving them to the main table or place them around the gathering areas of the house giving those that want to color the opportunity. For us, its on our kitchen island as that is where everyone gathers.
Do you remember the big trend a few years back with adult coloring books and coloring pages? I am here to tell you that they have never really left. While folks might not be coloring as they were with their morning coffee or at night as you watch TV, but adults really enjoy coloring. Makes for a fun Thanksgiving.
I have hosted both Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving for the past 5 years and I am here to tell you that I find that fun Thanksgiving placemat crafts are actually more enjoyed by the adults then possibly by the kids. Thanksgiving crafts are fun for the whole family.

What other Thanksgiving Activities do you have?
We have decided that we are bringing back the electronic free holidays at our house. That means that for this Thanksgiving, day we will be bringing out the board games, kids activities, word searches, and having lots of fun Thanksgiving crafts and Thanksgiving coloring pages like these coloring placemats for everyone to work on and more importantly it keeps the kids busy.
Inevitably when I state things like this, I get lots of questions from parents on what that looks like. I tell you, it is all kinds of fun. There aren’t faces in phones, the kids and adults are having conversations. They are playing and laughing and its my kind of heaven.
I truly hope that you enjoy your Thanksgiving with your friends and family and that you have the best day! I wish you all a HAPPY Thanksgiving.
