This post proves my point that I like to put faces on food! Thanksgiving is such a fun holiday for me but it requires being in the kitchen most of the day. My boys tend to get hungry and sometimes impatient while waiting for the BIG meal. I have found that if they have a project or are able to help with Thanksgiving dinner, we all win. Several years ago, I found a project similar to the picture above and it was the perfect project/snack before mealtime. If you're responsible for Thanksgiving dinner, try a food project for the kids. It's a great way to pass the time AND this particular project is healthy!!
Last year, one of my sweet potatoes resembled a bird. Several of the adults and my oldest son scurried around and created a table decoration. I had one less sweet potato but gained some fun memories! That's what it's all about, right?
