Thanksgiving Fun Foods and Recipes


Making Butter
Fill baby food jars half full of whipping cream and screw the lids on tightly. Let kids take turns shaking each jar. After about 5 minutes the cream will be whipped, and after another min or so, lumps of yellow butter will form. Rinse off the liquid whey and add a little salt, if desired. Then spread on crackers to taste!

Turkey Treats
These are cute and easy to make.
Ritz Cracker
canned frosting,
chocolate kiss,
candy corn
Spread frosting on cracker. Peel the paper off the kiss and place kiss near the bottom of the cracker. add candy corn above the kiss to make feathers; place one corn on the kiss for the head. Let frosting dry. Attach a caramel to the back with more frosting to make it stand up.


Bugles corn snacks
Trix cereal
white frosting

Put a small dab of frosting in a bugle. Put several trix in each "cornucopia".


Turkey Toast
Use a large turkey shaped cookie cutter to cut out shape from wheat bread. Spread the whole shape with peanut butter. Use a raisin for and eye, a slice of a red gummy worm for the wattle, and fruit loops for the tail feathers. Tastes good, and kids love it! (warning, many children are allergic to peanut butter...check with parents first)


Apple Turkey
( I use this for the 3 year old gathering) Insert toothpicks into the bottom of a red apple to form legs. Insert another toothpick on the top of the apple (to one side), and push on a large marshmallow. On 4 more toothpicks, push colored gumdrops. Push these into the back of the apple for feathers. Add raisins and red gumdrop sliver to complete face. I use the heavy duty colored toothpicks to prevent breaking, or not spotting when eating. You now have a Thanksgiving turkey that doubles as centerpiece and a snack!


Oreo Turkeys
Oreo cookies
candy corn
malted milk balls
icing (not whipped)
Open one Oreo and place one part, icing side up (eat the other half). Add a bit of icing as glue, and stand another Oreo up on it (this is your turkey body). Spread one side half of the standing Oreo w/ icing, and attach 5-6 pieces of candy corn....fanned out like turkey feathers. Add a malted milk ball to the top of the other side, for head. An additional piece of candy corn can be used for a waddle (or a red m&m). Add candy pumpkins for effect....and create your own little turkey farm!
