I was a crazy picky eater as a kid. Not quite as picky as Trenton – I actually ate hamburgers and french fries – but I was still pretty picky.
I remember having an issue with Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey and bread. That was all I ate. (Thankfully I‘ve come to my senses, and I eat almost all of the Thanksgiving staples now.)
When we were invited to our friends’ house for Thanksgiving, I was planning on taking a box of fish sticks along for Trenton and any other picky eaters.
Then Brittanie told me that she was planning on making Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets for the kids. Score!
I decided to make a few other kid friendly things for them too.
Turkey Juice Boxes!
A brown paper grocery sack, red, yellow, and orange construction paper, googly eyes, and glue. So easy! And the kids loved helping me put these together!
Next on to a kid dessert.
These were a little more involved, but they turned out so cute!
I took waffle cones, held the bottom portion in a cup of hot water for 15-20 seconds, stuck the cone in the microwave for 20 seconds, and then wrapped the end around a pen, holding it in place for about a minute.
And then because I didn’t want to give all of the kids a HUGE sugar high (just a little one would be sufficient!), I stuck foil balls in the bottom of each cone before I filled them with M&Ms.
A square of cling wrap and a piece of ribbon, and the cornucopias were done!
The kids loved their kid friendly dinner. And there were even a few adults that tried out the kid fare!
I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
