Creative Thanksgiving Food Ideas

Fruit Kabob Turkey AKA Fruit Gobbler

Several years ago Family Fun Go shared a cute Fruit Gobbler with ingredients and instructions on their website. A friend of the Happy Home Fairy made an even cuter replica of it. You can see her version below as well as a variety of angles of the turkey kabob here.

Supplies

THANKSGIVING JOKE
Why can't you take turkeys to church?
Because they use fowl language!

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base. Using a section of bamboo skewer, attach a Bosc pear head to the melon, as shown.

  2. Cut a cheese triangle beak and red pepper snood. Attach both, along with raisin eyes, to the head with sections of toothpick.

  3. Cut red pepper feet and set them in place. For tail feathers, skewer cheese cubes and red grapes, then insert the skewers as shown. Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks.

Sweet Thanksgiving Favors

Sugar Cone Candy Cornucopias

Daily DIY Life created these fun Thanksgiving favors. We love them! Your kids can even help you make them.  Of course, you will have to heat and curl the cones, but they can sort the candy and fill them. Together you can wrap them in cellophane and tie them off with pretty ribbon.

BONUS: Not  only will you be preparing a sweet gift for Thanksgiving guests, but you'll be spending quality time with your kids and making lasting memories.
