Holidays around our house are often filled with a crowd of people and lots of different ages. It’s easiest to divide the guests up and have an adult table and a kids table. I love decorating both tables with different themes and I always think it’s fun to make the kids table a bit interactive with an activity or two, full of bright colors and festive holiday touches, and a place where a whole lot of fun can happen for the youngest guests. I gathered up some of my favorite kids table ideas in the slideshow below and I’m looking forward to incorporating a few of these fun ideas in our home this year. Take a peek and then let me know what fun touches you’ve added to the kids holiday table. Leave a comment here or share a photo with us on the Dukes and Duchesses facebook page!
