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 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.

Cheese put it on the table and see who it brings your family together.  EASY Holiday ideas, CHEESE, President Brie, AlbertsonsWhat do you think of when you hear the word CHEESE?  My kids would all think of the bright orange/ yellow brick of cheddar cheese that seems to be an american staple.   But when I hear the word cheese I now think of France.  Two years ago my husband and I were able to spend 2 weeks in France.  We stayed with distant relatives, so we lived “French” while we were there.  We saw some amazing things, ate some amazing food as well as some crazy things and were able to observe a totally different lifestyle than what we were use to.

One of the biggest difference’s was meal time.  Eating in France takes TIME, there is no such thing as a quick meal.  You start out with bread, then a salad, then a soup, then the main course… just then you think you could not eat anther thing they bring out the cheese, bread and fruit.  Only to then end with 90% dark chocolate and coffee.

All of this take about 2 hours, at the end of the meal they sit around and talk about what went on that day and  continue to eat cheese and bread.  There is NO yellow cheddar cheese to be found, instead a large assortment of aged cheese both hard and soft.  Some of it so “smelly” I could not bring myself to put it in my mouth.  Others I did get in my mouth but it was all I could take to swallow.  I did not want to offend anyone, after all sharing cheese seemed to be a real symbol of love.  Finally I found a cheese that I could not only swallow but rather enjoyed. Brie is a soft cheese, with a firm/ almost rubber like outside.  It is mild but still very much an aged cheese full of flavor.

Since we have come home we have decided to share this tradition with our children.  We do not eat cheese on a daily basis, but on special days or occasions we bring out the cheese, bread, fruit and even a little meat so all the kids can share in a little part of France.  I have to admit it makes me rather happy to see them gobble it down with a smile on their face, as they grow we will continue to  introduce them to more varieties.
