Growing up, Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday. (Well, maybe it tied with Christmas.) I loved the parade, the food, the football, the family, the big feast... all of it. We have a new tradition that involves making a Thanksgiving snacks that the kids will gobble up.

In our household, being relegated to kids' table was a good thing. There were activities and crafts and games to play while we waited for the Big Bird to make its debut. She had to keep us occupied; it seemed to take forever for the turkey to be carved and plated. That's why she also made sure that there were plenty of fun snacks ready to keep cranky kiddos contentedly smiling.

Create a Cute Thanksgiving Snack

I'm hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, and I'm going to take a cue from my mom's page and make the kids' table lively--and keep the snacks coming! These adorable turkey glove snacks will definitely make the cut. 


Thanksgiving Turkey Snack

Here are the simple ingredients you'll need to make this edible turkey:

  • Popcorn
  • Goldfish (or similar cheddar-cracker snack)
  • Clear glove
  • Rubber band
  • Black marker
  • Red marker
  • Set of googly eye balls.

Steps To create the Turkey Snack

  1. Fill the fingers with the cheddar snacks 
  2. Fill the body with popcorn
  3. Tie it up with a rubberband
  4. Glue on the eye balls and draw on the snood.
  5. Start snacking!

One more thought: How cute would these be as a place settings at the kids' table. They are also great for the ride to grandmother's house.
