20 Edible Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids
Wow has this year really flown by! Before we know it, we’ll be cutting the Turkey at the dinner table on Thanksgiving day! I remember always getting a kick out of celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday when I was in elementary school. Every year we’d have a “party” where we would do a special study on early American culture, put together fun little crafts and devour seasonal snacks until our bellies were stuffed!
Now that I have a little one of my own, I’ve been busy searching for simple DIY crafts and treats that my daughter will enjoy. Since I just can’t seem to ever get food off of my mind during this time of year, I thought it’d be even more fun to find crafts that you could also eat! I’ve put together a collection of 20 Edible Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids that were all made by some pretty fabulous bloggers. Take a gander and let me know which snacks you’ll be gobbling up this year! 😉
