How to Keep Kids Happy During Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a beloved holiday throughout America and for good reason: What’s better than a day full of delicious food, loads of friends and family, and a reason to watch football all day? And since Thanksgiving offers an excuse to purchase Wockenfuss candies for the dessert table, it’s even more of a reason to celebrate! Many children, though, don’t enjoy Thanksgiving traditions as much as adults do; in today’s blog, we offer a couple of ideas for ensuring that kids are just as thankful for your Thanksgiving celebration as the adults are!


Thanksgiving should be fun for all!

Offer Thanksgiving candy

If there’s one thing all children love, it’s delicious candy; Wockenfuss has you covered with a range of Thanksgiving-themed chocolates and candies that are sure to delight any child. Our hollow milk chocolate turkeys are a favorite even for those with the tiniest hands, and bowls of our seasonal reindeer candy corn will put children in the holiday spirit (and might just encourage better behavior once they remember that Santa Claus is watching!). Be sure to purchase a little more than you think you’ll need as you’re sure to find a few adults sneaking over to the kids’ table to snack on some of the delicious treats you provide!

Keep kids occupied

Even the best party can quickly go south when kids start getting antsy and complaining about wanting to go home. The best way to prevent this is with a little bit of planning. Provide a special table for children that makes them want to be there. This might mean providing special plates with their favorite characters or putting down brown butcher paper and providing crayons so that they can entertain themselves. Offering planned activities can also go a long way in keeping kids happy during a long party, even if it’s something as simple as popping in a DVD.
