Kid's Table Napkin RingsPosted on Oct 14, 2014 10:21:02 AM by Grace Tolman
Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving for the first time or you’re a weathered veteran for this holiday, making sure everything comes to together can be very stressful. Grace Tolman is on our blog with her second project for the kids table at Thanksgiving to help ease your holiday stress.
Here’s the second project I put together for a Thanksgiving Day kids table. You can make the napkin rings ahead of time or you can set out the supplies and have the kids make them (and help set the table at the same time). The kids can make their crafts and stay out of the kitchen until dinner is ready – a win-win for everyone!
Time: Approximately 15 minutes
- Glue Dots® Advance Strength Dispenser or All Purpose Dots™
- Craft Glue Dots®
- Pop Up Glue Dots®
- Paper Trimmer
- Cardstock (red, dark red, mustard yellow, purple, dark purple, lavender, dark green, glittered gold)
- Pattern Papers (brown chevron)
- Empty toilet paper roll
- Circle punch
- Black pen
- Googley eyes
- Cut out a 1” wide piece from the empty toilet paper roll. Cut a 1 ½” wide of paper strip from the brown chevron paper. Cover the toilet paper roll with the pattern paper. Secure the ends with Glue Dots Advanced Strength Dispenser.
- Punch out a 1 ¾” circle from the glittered gold cardstock. Use your favorite template for a leaf or create your own to trace the shape onto the rest of the colored cardstock. Cut out the leaves and adhere on the back of the gold cardstock circle. Adhere using Craft Glue Dots.
- Add the googley eyes using Craft Glue Dots and add a smile underneath the eyes using a black pen. Adhere the “turkey” face using Pop Up Glue Dots onto the napkin holder.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
