Roll, Please

It may not have a fancy wine list or heir­loom china, but the kids’ ta­ble is def­i­nitely the best seat in the house. It’s where ba­sic butcher pa­per trans­forms into a sweet sail­ing ves­sel, fall’s finest jew­elry, and more. Un­for­tu­nately, it’s fully booked. But if you be­have, the younger gen­er­a­tion just might share their sup­ply. For the how-tos, go to marthastew­art.com/tday­crafts.

1 MINI MAYFLOWER Tip your hat to the Pil­grims with a ship con­structed us­ing a sim­ple origami boat fold, and stocked with tools for dec­o­rat­ing the butcher­pa­per “table­cloth.” 2 POPCORNUCOPIA Kids’ hands and mouths will be oc­cu­pied un­til the turkey’s sliced— cre­at­ing th­ese a- maize- ing snack­filled cones from two dif­fer­ent colors of butcher pa­per. 4 TURKEY TOP­PER Get your flock into the fes­tive spirit by rock­ing th­ese bright tail feath­ers. Prep head­bands for lit­tle ones to color in; big­ger kids can as­sem­ble their own.

3 LEAF LEIS Give “aloha!” an au­tum­nal twist: Em­bel­lish string neck­laces with pa­per leaves (cut out a big pile with a craft punch) and col­or­ful or­ganic pasta.
