Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Ideas

We have had Charlie Brown Thanksgiving a few times.

Usually, it was just us but last year we decided to surprise our friends… well, the wife and daughter knew about it the but the husband didn’t.

He is quite the Charlie Brown fan so it was really nice to see his face and to hear his laughter when he realized what was going on…

Thanksgiving for Kids. Celebrate the fall with Charlie Brown Party.
We had a different chair for everyone… and yes, that is a beach chair. My husband sat in it. He wanted to be Franklin.

You might want to add some theme fitting things like:

  • different chairs for the dining room table (or whether permitting eat outside)
  • if you have a ping pong table use that as the dinner table
  • stainless steel dome to cover all the yummy food to be served

Kid-approved Thanksgiving dinner!

We used paper plates since we wanted to do what Snoopy did: toss the plates. You should have seen our guest of honor’s face when the plate was flung in front of him. It was funny!

Don’t forget to play awesome background music as the guests arrive and during the dinner.
