Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to spend time with the family… But if you are like most moms, you’ll be posted in the kitchen before the big day. To make sure you aren’t hovering over the stove alone this year, we’ve found a couple of easy Thanksgiving recipes you can make with the kids! Have fun getting involving them in the kitchen and getting them hands-on with making the food. Gettings kids to cook is a fun learning experience where you can teach them about the food they’re making, kitchen safety, and preparation techniques. Not only that, imagine the pride they will take in sharing their creations with the family.
We’ve scoured the internet for these great recipes, and we hope that you and your kids will enjoy them!
Three-Cheese Mini Macs

Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate
This recipe won’t keep the kids busy for long, since it only takes about 10 minutes to make; then again, that could be a good thing. Pumpkin and white chocolate is an amazing flavor combination and when used in hot chocolate, it makes for a great way to stay warm on cold winter days.

This recipe takes advantage of fresh, seasonal fruit with easy steps along the way that kids can follow. Switch out the fruit for some of your favorite berries, and even add ice cream if you like.

Candy Corn Popsicles
These are both nutritious and delicious! All you need is a little orange juice, pineapple juice and yogurt. Or switch it up with your favorite juices (just don’t expect it to look like candy corn *wink*). These are great to make the night before Thanksgiving.
