Give Thanks and Give Back with Cute Table Setting Cards and Decorated Mini Pumpkin Centerpieces Created with Yoobi Products

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone alone.


This Thanksgiving, you’ll have the turkey, stuffing and desserts prepared, but your spread won’t be complete without the final touches from colorful, customizable Fall place settings your kids can make using Yoobi products.

I was first introduced to Yoobi and their amazing line kids stationary, crafting supplies and even fun office supplies for all ages.  And, what I love most about Yoobi is their mission to give back, with every purchase made.  Try saying that about other companies.  We are in the season for giving, so what better way to prep for your upcoming Thanksgiving with family and friends, than by having your children create fun place settings and pumpkin centerpieces using Yoobi products. 


"For every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S. It's that simple."

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we would like to offer these festive kits from Yoobi to help you and your family prepare for the holiday. And, when you purchase Yoobi supplies you know you will be helping out a classroom in need, which makes doing this fun Thanksgiving (also good for Christmas and New Year's) activity with your children.

Last week,  I was sent a box of supplies and two mini pumpkins from the folks at Yoobi.  They wanted to see how crafty my girls could be in creating fun table setting cards and decorating their "blank canvas" pumpkins with the Yoobi supplies they sent. 

We received a 12 Pack of Glitter Shakers, Star Shape Glitter, Liquid Glue, 10 Pack of Washable Markers, Yoobi name tags, and the two mini pumpkins.  I love when I have all supplies on hand for a craft and don't have to run out and grab more.  While I was finalizing my holiday dinner shopping list, the girls set up their craft table with the box of goodies they were sent from Yoobi and started to brainstorm ideas for the pumpkins. I wrote down the names of everyone coming for dinner, and divided the names up amongst the girls so that they could make name tags/table place settings for everyone.  

The girls LOVE crafting, so they had a blast doing this activity.  I wish I could show the finished pumpkins, which came out amazing, but the girls want to surprise everyone coming on Thanksgiving day.  If you look in one of the photos below you will see them off to the side drying...but, don't tell the girls. :-)

Want your kids to get in on the fun of creating table settings/name tags or decorating a mini pumpkin for a nice centerpiece on your family's Thanksgiving table?  Here are the easy to follow steps including supplies needed so that you can do this fun DIY Yoobi product, like my girls did, and loved! :-)

Create Your Own Fall Place Setting!


Items to use:

Yoobi Name Tags
Mini Pumpkins

Challenge yourself, your friends and your kids to create their very own, customized place setting! With the holidays around the corner, this is such a great way to bring everyone together for some crafting fun.

Step 1: Layout some newspaper to catch your mess- this fun pumpkin craft can get messy, so you’ll want something to scoop up the excess glitter to reuse later!

Step 2: Using liquid glue and your choice of glitter, create fun designs and personalized patterns on your pumpkin. There are no rules here, the sky is the limit!
-          If you’re using the glitter shakers, we suggest you draw your designs out with liquid glue, and then sprinkle glitter on top. Shake lightly to remove the excess glitter.
-          If you’re using the star shaped glitter, we suggest you draw your designs out with liquid glue, and then individually place stars on top of the glue for the best precision.

Step 3: Set your pumpkins off to dry (best if dried overnight).

Step 4: Design your Yoobi name tags! Using Yoobi’s double-ended stamp markers and gel pens, draw out your name any which way you’d like.

Step 5: Cut out your name tags and punch a hole through them. Using any string or ribbon of choice, tie them around your pumpkin.

Voila! A colorful table setting for all of your friends and family to enjoy as you gather around for what we’re sure will be a fun and festive meal. Happy Crafting!

Yoobi is based on a bright yet simple idea: colorful, vibrant supplies for school, home or office that give to classrooms in need. For every Yoobi item purchased, Yoobi contributes a Yoobi item to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S.! So while we’re in the spirit of giving thanks – now is the time to support a great brand that is dedicated to giving back!
