5. Repurpose What you Have

Using what you already have to decorate is always the best way to go when thinking eco-friendly. If you have pumpkins or gourds leftover from Halloween, use those as a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table. If you have beautiful pumpkin decorations that you use for Halloween, leave them out until after Thanksgiving. My son has a large Jack o’ Lantern stuffed toy that he likes to sit on our sofa during October, once Halloween ends he simply turns the pumpkin around (the spooky face is hidden) and we enjoy the pumpkin through November.

6. Candle Wreaths

Grab some cardboard from the recycling bin, help your child cut it into a small wreath shape that is large enough to sit a soy candle inside. Give your child creative control to glue natural elements; small pine-cones, acorns, leaves, twigs etc; around the wreath. It’s fun to make a whole row of these as the centerpiece of your Thanksgiving table and a fun way to entertain your children for the afternoon.
