Vegetable Turkey Cups a quick and healthy treat for Fall and Thanksgiving parties, Kids Snack Ideas, healthy partie ideasMy 4 year old had his Thanksgiving Feast  at preschool yesterday.  All the kids were suppose to bring a snack to share…. I bet you all think I made this adorable vegetable turkey…. NOPE.  My kid voted to bring Cheetos, I had a crazy busy day so I gave him a high five, and told him that was a fabulous idea.   Katie who helps list our amazon deals on our site made these, her son is in the same preschool class.  She gets the super mom award for making these adorable vegetable turkey cups.  They were fast and easy but so cute and the kids loved them.  I am going to have to remember this idea for next year.

To make them all you need is: Plastic cups, yellow or tan card stock, black marker, yellow marker, red marker , scissors and scotch tape. Oh and vegetables cut into strips.  Cut out a turkey (kind of the same shape as a bowling pin).  Use the markers to draw on a face, use the tape to stick it to the side of the cup.  Cut your veggies (turkey feathers) into long skinny strips, place in cup and you are DONE.

Thanks again Katie for the adorable idea!

Fall Leaves Craft made with a toilet paper roll and paint, quick and easy diy craft for kids Party Ideas for kidsFrugal Fall Toilet Paper Leaf Stamps

Create a whole tree of lovely fall leaves when you try this toilet paper leaf stamps activity. Using just a leftover toilet paper roll, you can make your own perfect fall leaves in just seconds. Kids are sure to love this hands on activity that practices not only colors but motor skills as well, and you will love that this is a frugal fall craft you can enjoy for just pennies. Take a look below at how to get started on your own toilet paper leaf stamps!

Supplies needed:

  • White paper
  • Brown craft ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Red, yellow, and orange craft paint
  • 3 Cardboard rolls (a toilet paper or paper towel roll is perfect)
  • Craft glue

Fall Leaves Craft made with a toilet paper roll and paint, quick and easy diy craft for kids Party Ideas for kidsDirections:

1. Begin by taking the brown ribbon and creating the trunk of the tree. To do this, cut the brown ribbon into several different lengths. Glue the longest length down on some white paper for the trunk, then go back and add on smaller lengths for branches.

2. Continue this process of arranging and gluing the ribbon until the skeleton of your tree is formed.

3. It is now time to create your toilet paper stamp leaves. Begin by putting a few drops of each paint color on a plate. You will now want to spread it around into a thin layer.

4. Gently press the toilet paper down roll so a more oval shape is formed. Instead of the mouth of the roll being round, you want it slightly bent, in more of a leaf shape.

5. Dip the end of the cardboard rolls into the paint and press them to the paper. Press firmly and remove. The leaf shape should now be in place. Repeat the process using all of the colors, placing them all over the trunk of the tree. It is important to have several rolls on hand, or cut the rolls you have in half so you have one for each color. Once your leaves are dry, the piece can be displayed. Give this fun and frugal fall craft a try. It is a great way to get kids into the fall spirit for less!

Turkey Pretzel  and fast and easy treat for fall or Thanksgiving, Party Recipes for kids, Snack Ideas for Fall
Turkey Pretzel Pops

My girls love to make fun treats for the Holidays, so I am always looking for ideas that are fast and easy…. but most of all, cute.  These Turkey Pretzel Pops are a fun options.  They don’t cost much to make, and are absolutely adorable. Hope you enjoy this idea as much as my kids did.  Random tip, my stores always tend to sell out of pretzel rods around the Holidays so don’t wait to pick yours up… I normally buy the store brand when they go on sale for a dollar a bag.

What you need to make your own Turkey Pretzel Pops

  • Pretzel Rods
  • Reese’s Pieces, orange and yellows, cut in half
  • Chocolate Chips, or candy melts
  • Candy corn, assorted
  • Candy Pearls or Candy Eyes
  • Chocolate Rice Cereal

Instructions

Break Pretzel Rods in half. Melt Chocolate in microwave, 30 seconds and stir, 15 second increments stirring after each until melted and smooth, let sit at least 5 minutes to set up just a little to make it easier to work with. On a piece of wax paper lay out 3 candy corns in a fan shape with the pointy side in. Using a spoon cover a Pretzel Rod with Chocolate. Leave a little extra on the top back part to stick to the candy corn. Lay the Chocolate covered pretzel over the Candy Corn so they stick out the tops. Apply 2 Pearls for eyes at the top end by the Candy Corn. You may need to hold them for a few seconds so they set. Using a toothpick, dab it in the Chocolate and gently apply a dot to each pearl. Place a half piece of a Reese’s pieces under the Pearls for the beak. Coat with cereal for the feathers. Let cool and set at least 30 minutes. Gently remove from wax paper and store in airtight container in cool place.
