Thanksgiving Fun Festivities & Tasty Themed Treats

In our house on Thanksgiving you will find the guys parked on the couch watching football, the girls in the kitchen cooking and talking about Christmas and the kiddos running around the house trying to find something fun to do to keep them entertained. This year I thought it would be nice to plan a few Thanksgiving themed activities for the kids to do so they wont get bored.

 Pumpkin Tic-Tac-Toe
Mini Pumpkins in white and orange, masking tape.

 Turkey Bowling
Turkey center pieces and a ball from The Dollar Tree.

Throw The Scarecrow
6 scarecrow decoration dolls (3 each) and two buckets from The Dollar Tree.

Pin The Gobbler On The Turkey
Poster board, markers and construction paper.

Thanksgiving Themed Tasty Treats

Turkey Caramel Apple Dip

Caramel Sauce (I made mine by boiling a can of condensed milk)
Candy Corn
Mini Chocolate Chips
Different Colored Apples
Place a small bowl on a larger plate. Slice the apples. Place the apple slices around the bowl in the shape of a turkey tail. Pour the caramel sauce into the bowl. Top with a candy corn nose and mini chocolate chip eyes.

Chocolate Cookie Acorns

Hershey's Kisses
Mini Chocolate Chips
Black Icing
Golden Mini Oreo's
Squeeze a dot of the frosting onto one side of the Oreo's. Place a Hershey's kiss on top of the icing. Pick up the cookie with the Hershey's kiss attached and squeeze another dot of icing on the other side of the cookie. Place a mini chocolate chip on top of this icing dot.

Pilgrim Hats

Devil's Food Cookies
Orange Icing
Reese's Pieces
Squeeze a dot of the orange icing onto the cookies. Place a Rolo onto the orange icing squishing the icing down to make a rim. Squeeze a bit of orange frosting onto the backs of the orange Reese's Pieces then place the frosting side onto the Rolo's.
