Corbin and Emma helped create the colorful turkey in our pictures, and I’m pretty sure there were a few gobble-gobbles coming from the kitchen as they worked!

This sounds fun and yummy. Will try it with my kiddos.

This is cute and healthy too! We love this time of year. Thanks for this post.

I made this with my preschooler the week before Thanksgiving. We made it as a full size veggie platter and served it at dinner. I used a heart shaped bowl as the body and another small oval dish for the head to hold the hummus.

If your kids love hummus, you should try this “J is for Jellyfish” snack. It’s one of my favorites!
