Kids' foods fit for a feast

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and never more so than during the holidays. And while you have everyone together, why not put them to work! Making things together in the kitchen is a way to inspire your kids’ imagination (and appetite) and create memories and traditions for years to come. Here are a few adorable yet delicious recipes your kids will eat right up!

Food Fun with Kids!

What child wouldn’t be interested in an edible decoration with all the major food groups represented—peanut buttercups, Oreos, candy corn and Whoppers? Little kids can help sort and count the candy as the bigger kids work on assembling all the pieces. Let them decorate their table with their masterpieces—then gobble them up for dessert!

Try making these cookies with your little turkeys! They consist of frosting and candy corn on sugar cookies—super easy and super cute! Wrap them individually for a school bake sale (sure to be a bestseller!) or fill up your cookie jar for holiday guests.

Harvest Hash - Halloween Trail Mix

This super versatile recipe offers numerous ingredient combinations—you can just experiment until you find the perfect mix. Once you have the main ingredients together, try adding nuts, marshmallows, popcorn, Goldfish, Cheerios, chocolate chips or Craisins. The recipe could even be customized with everyone’s favorites for that long car ride.

Thanksgiving decor to make with the family

As the holidays approach, it’s easy to get caught up in the chaos. Why not take time out for a little fun and get the kids in on the act as you prep for Thanksgiving? These adorable crafts will help encourage creativity and imagination—not to mention create lasting family memories. A pint-sized table and chair set from KidKraft is the perfect place to start. It can serve as crafting headquarters until Thanksgiving Day, when the little ones sit down to their own feast!

No refrigerator door would be complete without at least one paper plate turkey. The googly eyes, seasonal colors and 3-D beak cutout are sure to make you smile even when you’re in the midst of preparing your own Thanksgiving turkey.

We love this idea! Every day during the month of November, have everyone in your house write down something they’re thankful for and slip the paper into the Thankful Turkey Box. On Thanksgiving Day, while everyone is gathered around the dinner table, get all the papers out and read them as a family. It’s a great conversation starter, too!

After a long day of crafting, retire to the porch for some much-earned rest. Our two-slat rocking chairs provide the perfect respite. And keep all their crafts supplies handy and organized by storing them all in our sturdy toy caddy, perfect for toting from room to room.
