5 Thanksgiving Recipes Kids Can Help Make

Your Thanksgiving menu might’ve been set weeks ago (or even generations ago, if your family is like mine), but one question still remains: what are some easy and fun Thanksgiving recipes that that my kids can help make? If you’re looking for ways to keep your children involved and occupied (and help minimizing the ‘when are we gonna eat?’ inquiries) look no further.

These 5 recipes are kid-friendly; they can be made in a few simple steps and don’t require the oven. And depending on the age of your child,  he or she might even be able to make them on his or her own. Happy cooking and Happy Thanksgiving!
