Holiday Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board
Make a simple Holiday Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board, mixing together crudités with charcuterie (veggies with meats and cheese).
Thanksgiving Day should be a time of enjoyment with friends and family. We’re starting off the day with this Holiday Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board, made on a Lazy Susan. You can also take this board and make a Turkey Snack Board (by The BakerMama).

Kids at Thanksgiving
When you think about mealtime conversation and relationships in general, the holidays can be hard or they can be easy. But have you ever noticed how kids lighten up the mood? Kids love to place olives on their fingers, and dip carrot sticks into ranch dressing.
Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board
Looking at our Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board, I spy celery sticks stuffed with peanut butter, a great childhood memory and flavor for me!
And here are 7 Tips for a Delicious Crudités Platter (which is how my mom’s generation made a vegetable tray).
How to make a Holiday Kid-Friendly Charcuterie Board
Kids love olives, meats, cheese, crackers, and of course carrot sticks and ranch dressing.
Oh, and celery sticks with peanut butter.
I didn’t make it too grand, because we must save room for the Thanksgiving feast!
How do you keep conversation going and make sure that everyone is included?
Thanksgiving Day conversation starters
For Thanksgiving Day, here are a few questions to get the conversation going …
- What are you thankful for?
- Share an experience you had this past year where you felt truly grateful for something unusual?
- Share a childhood Thanksgiving memory that you can’t get out of your head?
- Think of a person you’d like to invite to dinner next year, and why?
I’m so grateful for our guests coming to dinner this year.
Hosting is a simple and meaningful expression of gratitude. Taking the opportunity to invite others into our homes is a very intimate gesture. We’re saying, come into our space; make yourself at home!
Just the opportunity to be together is enough. Adding in delicious food is even better.
