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, but the husband didn’t.
He is quite the Charlie Brown fan, so it was charming to see his face and to hear his laughter when he realized what was going on…
1. Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Invitations
If the theme is not a surprise, send invitations like these cute Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Invitations.
Your guests will be delighted to receive these invites and will be put in the party mood right away.
If the theme is a surprise, you can just simply invite friends over for dinner.
2. Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Decorations
Since this party usually happens in the fall, you probably have your fall decorations up.
You are almost all set…
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, weather 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
- white table cloth
- Snoopy plush doll
- Woodstock plush doll
- Charlie Brown plush doll
- napkins folded into boats

Kid-approved Thanksgiving dinner!
We used paper plates since we wanted to do what Snoopy did: toss the plates.
It was funny! You should have seen our guest of honor’s face when the plate was flung in front of him.
Don’t forget to play awesome background music as the guests arrive and during the Dinner.
Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Soundtrack is a perfect choice!

3. Guess the Amount
How many jelly beans are in a jar.
Easy, easy, easy. I love easy-to-set-up games.
- Just buy a bag or two of jelly beans and put them in a jar.

Or use Thanksgiving photo props. Wear a pilgrim’s hat or hold up a sign that says “gobble gobble ’till you wobble.”
Put a Charlie Brown wall decal on the wall and take pictures with Charlie! This one is a pretty good size.
It would not be a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving without a group photo with Charlie!
