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!
