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!

Turkey Veggie Straw snack, fast and eeasy healthy snack for kids. Perfect for ThanksgivingHealthy Thanksgiving Snacks: Veggie Straw Turkey

Are you looking for a healthy Thanksgiving snack? This veggie straw turkey makes not only a healthy Thanksgiving snack, but a great craft for kids too. Take a look below how fun, frugal, and healthy Thanksgiving snacking and crafting can be.

Here is what you will need:

Turkey Veggie Straw snack, fast and eeasy healthy snack for kids. Perfect for ThanksgivingDirections:

1. Begin by assembling the face of your turkey. Begin by adding a dab of glue to the googly eyes and pressing them to the front of the cup. Hold in place until secure.

2. Snip a small triangle out of your orange paper. Secure it directly under the eyes for the beak of the turkey.

3. Finish the face by creating the gobbler. A strip of red paper or foam works great for this. Secure it under the beak with glue.

4. You will now create the “feathers” of your turkey. Simply place the colorful veggie straws in the cup. You can flare them out a bit if you wish to really look like feathers. Kids will love snacking on their edible turkeys, and you will love how frugal and healthy this Thanksgiving treat is. Gather your supplies and try making your own veggie straw turkeys. They are soon to be a Thanksgiving favorite!Turkey Veggie Straw snack, fast and eeasy healthy snack for kids. Perfect for Thanksgiving

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.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip~ Turkey Tray~ Thanksgiving Snack Idea

This fruit dip is AMAZING.  Seriously.  If you like apples and peanut butter you are going to want to eat it all on your own.  The recipe makes enough to share, so bring it to your next holiday gathering so you aren’t tempted to eat it all alone.

thanksgiving food ideas, #snack, #apple, #fruitdip, #thanksgiving, #turkey, #apples, #fall

Recipe

1 cube cream cheese

1 cup brown sugar packed

1 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup milk

*Would also be fabulous with chocolate chips mixed in

Soften your cream cheese, add all your other ingredients and mix with a mixer.  It really is so simple!

Let it chill for a little while (although it tastes great right away too)

To create this cute turkey with your apple slices, you will need a round tray.  For easy clean up, cover it in tin foil.  Use an apple slicer and cut up the desired amount of apples.  The tray pictured had 5 whole Fuji apples on it.  Place your bowl of dip on the tray.  Arrange fanning out the slices as if they are the feathers, spreading around your bowl.  Your bowl is the body of the turkey.  I used m&ms for my turkey face and a Hershey kiss for his beak.

Your apples will turn brown if sliced too long, so slice them just before serving.
