12 Thanksgiving Pajamas For Kids So They Can Be *Extra* Festive For 2020

In a year unlike any other, things like starting new traditions and wearing festive attire can help set the tone for a fun day at home. Thanksgiving pajamas for kids might have been considered a bit "extra" in years past, but in 2020, anything goes. Even if you outfit your entire family in Turkey day sleepwear, you'll find zero judgement here.

In our house, waking up on Thanksgiving morning is almost like Christmas morning. My kids zip out of bed, ready to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV, snack on extra pecans while I bake my yearly pecan pie, run amuck with their cousins at grandma's house, and then gobble up every single thing on the dessert table. It's always magical. Although this year the parade will be virtual and we won't get to gather with all of our family members, I still want them to be just as excited to jump out of bed on Turkey Day as they are any other year. Letting them pick out a pair of special Thanksgiving pajamas to wear all day and night is sure to do the trick.

If your Thanksgiving this year looks less like a formal family dinner at Aunt Mary's house and more like lounging at home watching a football game without fans, adding a new tradition to the day might help your kids get more excited about your at-home celebration. Take a look at these Thanksgiving pajamas for kids and go all out with your festive attire.
